    Thermostat pool timer

    Was wondering if anyone has heard of or made a thermotimer for winter operation.

    Yep..Intermatic makes one and I have it. Works great! I had a basic timer from Intermatic and was able to order and just change out the internal works.
    Hope that helps. Good Luck!!

    Re: Thermostat pool timer

    Is the idea to turn on the circulation pump when the temperature gets to near freezing?

    Maybe something like this: http://www.heatersplus.com/sst-2.html

    Although, I'd probably want something that gets a little closer to 32*F

    Re: Thermostat pool timer

    Nice! I was mostly just curious about it as it wouldnt work well for me here in NE. But i was reading another thread about not closing a pool in winter and asking if an inch or two of ice build up would be a problem. So i figured there must be a thermotimer and if not I should make one!!! Lol

    Foobert yeah sort of like that but was thinking of a digital house thermostat turning the pump on instead of a furnace

    The Intermatic can be adjusted for on/off temp.
