Timers? What do I get for a pump and booster pump? Confused!

nicole007September 18, 2012

I have a Haywood pump and a booster pump. I see there are some timers for 220 volts and others for less volts. Do I just get one based on voltage or what other things do I consider? Any input appreciated! Thanks.

Voltage and current, typically enough for a 3 HP.

I have an Intermatic P1353ME. It can control 3 things. I have a 2sp pump and a booster pump. I have the timer set for pump low speed only right now so it automatically runs 12 hrs a day. I only use high speed for backwashing or cleaning the pool so I just turn it on manually. There are 3 buttons for manual on/off so this is easy to do, just open the cover and push a button. It does have a feature that when you push the button for the booster, it automatically turns the high speed on for a minute, then the booster pump will come on. You can have up to 3 timed "events" for each switch

Yes. My 2hp Whisperflo is 240 (actually reads 230VAC on pump).

Scott,

I took a couple of pictures of the timer. It is getting dark here so kinda low light but I think you can see well enough.

Here it is next to the Pool Pilot so you can tell the size of it.

Here is the control panel.
