Thread: Is there a single timer designed for 2 pumps (main/booster)?

    Is there a single timer designed for 2 pumps (main/booster)?

    I have been looking and looking. And maybe its just my novice electrician skills, but I have yet to find a simple, digital timer that controls both the main pump, and has a separate programming feature for the booster pump. I've seen the Intermatic one that has two units in one box, but that's not really what I'm looking for. Any suggestions? Like I said, this seems like it'd be obvious...so I must be overlooking something.

    Welcome to TFP!

    The Intermatic P1353ME is a good option.

    I saw that one! Ok, now it says 3-circuit, and my main pump, SWCG, and booster pump are all wired for 220v - which is 2 separate circuits (assuming I'd tie the SWCG in to the same circuit as the main pump)...would the third circuit have to be 220v as well? Or can each individual circuit be tailored to specific input voltage - like if I wanted to also run my pool light from it?

    Each switch is independent, so you can mix different voltages.
