    Intermatic T104m issue after power surge

    I replaced my intermatic t104m a couple of years ago due to the timer notch wearing out. A couple of days ago we had power surge here and the timer stopped working. I checked power and it’s ok. But timer doesn’t seem to be working. So in my wisdom I got my old intermatic that had a worn notch...

    Intermatic pool timer issues.

    Just an update replaced the whole mechanism and all good now. I noticed the ON mechanism under the dial had a worn out, shame they don't make them like they used to. 365 x 6 approx 2000 on clicks before the metal wore out. Technically the tripper should wear out first but I guess it's done this...

    Intermatic pool timer issues.

    Unrelated. I just noticed the ground earth wire has been removed from timer . I remember putting this on when I installed it 6 years ago. Since then I had a new pool pump and filter installed by a third party so they didn't attach it, but now it looks like they out the ground earth wire in a cap ?

    Water evap and bucket test?

    I think the design of my pool could have been better. In respect to the skimmer line etc. Basically I get vortex in skimmer beyond two inches of water loss.

    So if the new ON tripper fails to resolve the issue, is there another part that I can buy?

    Water evap and bucket test?

    I've found the bucket test not to be so accurate , am I correct in thinking that the surface area of the pool and the depth of the water in the bucket would less evap from the bucket? In any case, I'm central Florida and there has been no rain for a while. My in ground pool has lost 2 inches of...

    Intermatic pool timer issues.

    If the contact point was worn , wouldn't that also prevent the off tripper from engaging? I went ahead and ordered some trippers. I replaced the whole unit about 6 years.

    Intermatic pool timer issues.

    My pool timer won't turn on but will turn off. I checked the ON tripper and reseated it still no luck. Anything else to look for? The clock timer does rotate. Thanks.

    Main drain cover half off

    Thanks for the advice. Fortunately for me the main drain doesn't truly function as a main drain. Meaning when I flip the valve lever main drain it causes pressure in the sand filter to immediately raise. That's the reason I unscrewed the cover in the first place. I wanted to see what was under...
