How long did your pool timer last before it failed?

Plug in timers are not suitable for motors as they are inductive loads which exceed the 13A plug-in timers are rated at.

You should get a timer and contactor to run your pump with.

I started using a plug in timer about 12 months ago. Still going strong and very simple to operate. Cost me the grand sum of 2 from B&Q. Compared to the 25 quoted at message one, seems i got a bargain .



Vaughan - Point taken, but at 2 a pop, I am happy if it just lasts a year. My fitted timer and contactor was too small for my tired old eyes and stumpy fingers and was playing up anyway

If you can buy your timers cheap enough, changing one every year is probably the most cost effective way to do it. If it's going to cost you 25 quid every year, that's another matter.
