    Need help getting my timer to turn pool filter on and off

    I am trying to get the digital timer to activate and shut down the filter on my pool. I am completely lost and when I contacted the company that makes the timer (Intermatic RC2000 Series Four Function Air Switch with Timer) they responded with the following:
    "You have your air switch in the wrong position. You need to be in sequence one."

    I have no idea what they mean by this but I have some pictures of the filter system. Can anyone help?

    I am able to set the timer's "on/off" times and the timer itself will shutoff, but the filter does not respond.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Try pressing the air switch and see if that changes things.

    The way these are typically setup, each press of the air switch switches back and forth between always on and controlled by the timer. I imagine you have it in the always on position.

    Silly question, but where is the air switch. That was the advice of the timer's manufacturer but we are not sure where that switch would be found.

    Somewhere there should be a push button connected via a vinyl hose. Look at the accessories tab in that link and see if you recognize anything.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
