I have an above ground pool with a 1 hp Jacuzzi Magnum pump which is wired 230 volts . I am looking to purchase an outdoor timer and would like to know which timer would be best suited for this application.
If you are needing a timer for controlling just the pump then I would recommend using timer model T104P3.
Does the pool pump timer need to be hard wired?
Hi, Salvatore. Yes, the pump will need to be hardwired to the breaker.
What does the on/off switch control? Does it turn off the timer and leave the load energized or does it turn off the load? When turned off, does the clock continue to run to stay on schedule when the switch is turned back on?
It powers the equipment on and off, the time clock will continue to have power running to it. If you use the trippers to control the on and off feature, you will not need to use the manual shut off.
how many hours is required for a salt water pool to run a day?
The average swimming pool needs to run approximately 6-8 hours a day.
What would be wrong with using this timer to control an outlet mounted in a weather tight box and plugging the pump and chlorinator into the outlet? Wouldn't that give the same result as hard wiring the equipment to the timer? It would be easier to winterize if you could just unplug the equipment and remove it.
Hi, David. You can hardwire the outlet to this timer to control whatever is plugged into the outlet.
This has to be hard wired in? It does not have a receptacle for a 3 prong connector?
Hi, David. This time must be hardwired to and from.
I have an above ground pool that is running on a 1.5hp pump. The label on the motor states, "Motor prewired 115 Volt." Is this timer large enough to accommodate my pool pump?
Hi. Yes, this timer will be able to power your pump when wired to a sufficient size breaker.
My above ground pool pump and salt water chlorinator has a standard 110v grounded plug on the ends of the power cables. Can I simply plug them into this timer, or does an outlet get wired into this timer, and then I plug pump/chlorinator into the outlet?
Hi, Kev. Both your pump and generator would have to to be hard wired directly to this timer. This timer would eliminate the outlet
Can I hook up a pool salt chlorination system and a pool pump. Both are 110 vollts. thank you.
Hi Robin, You can use this timer to control your pump and chlorine generator as long as the amp draw does not exceed the limit coming from the breaker.
My pool pump is a 1.39 HP and as a Hubbell hb5666c plug. What kind of timer do I need to have it run turn and off every four hours. Thank you
Hi Marvin, If your pump is wired 115V then this would be the timer for you. If your pump is wired 240V then you would require the Intermatic 240V Pool Pump Timer T104P3
Is this timer rated for exterior mounting?
Yes this unit is rated for exteior mounting
Does this timer have knockouts for the electrical and where are they located?
Here is all the information we have regarding the knockouts: Knockouts - Combination 1/2" - 3/4" nominal knockouts, one on the back and each side of case, two on bottom
How many on/off devices come with the unit? I am using this for my eletric hot water heater, I want the heater to come on around 5:00AM and off at 7:00AM, then on again at 5:00PM and off and 7:00PM. So I guess I'm asking can I program two on and off's or do I have to buy something else?
This timer comes with one "On" tripper and one "Off" tripper but can accommodate up to 12 On/Off positions. So to accomplish the following "...come on around 5:00AM and off at 7:00AM, then on again at 5:00PM and off and 7:00PM" You would require the purchase of the timer which comes with 2 trippers, plus the purchase of one additional set of on / off trippers which you may view or purchase here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02400004003526.htm
My pool pump motor indicates V115/230. Will thistimer accommodate the pool pump? Also,can you tell me the voltage on the clock motor?
Your pump can be wired either 115V or 230V If you have your pool pump wired at 230V than you would want to go with the T104P3 timer if you have the pump wired at 115V than you would want to go with the T101P3 timer. T104P3 timer has a 230V time clock motor and the T101P3 timer has a 115V time clock motor. You may purchase either of these time clocks through the following link http://www.inyopools.com/controls_intermatic.aspx

I REMOVED THE OLD TIMER, USING A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER AFTER MAKING SURE THAT POWER TO THE DEVICE WAS TURNED OFF BY DISCONNECTING THE CIRCUIT BREAKER, AND THE MAIN POWER SWITCH. I THEN TOOK A PICTURE OF THE OLD DEVICE AND THE WIRE CONNECTIONS, DISCONNECTED THE OLD WIRES, AND INSTALLED THE NEW DEVICE USING THE NEW SCREWS PROVIDED. I THEN RE-CONNECTED THE WIRES USING THE PICTURE TO MAKE SURE THE WIRES WERE HOOKED UP CORRECTLY.
