    Best retrofit timer for two-speed pump with Polaris 280

    I have a big in-ground pool with an Intermatic box that has space for two timers. I have a whisperflow two speed 220v pump and a Polaris 280 pump.

    I've used the tightwatt 2 timer for a few years and liked it a lot until the relay that controls the pump on low-speed quit working. I've looked at the intermatic P1353ME digital timer and it didn't have some of the features I liked about the Tightwatt. I liked the tightwatt and may have to disassemble it and solder in a new relay, but would prefer to find something from a company that's still in business.

    Are there other digital timers available that will handle pump high and low plus a cleaner pump?

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
