Installing a timer on your pool or spa pump

Posted in: Residential on May 23rd, 2013

A pool is a big investment and can cost a lot of time and money to maintain throughout the year. However, there are ways to save money and still enjoy your backyard when it’s convenient for you.

Most pool heaters – including those designed for above ground pools – can be outfitted with a timer to control when they run and for how long. Cycling your pool’s water at predetermined, off-peak times can help you reduce your electricity bill and spare you the trouble of remembering to check on your pool’s equipment during the day.

These aren’t the only benefits, of course. According to Rick Yates, Master Electrician at SRP Electric, pool timers can significantly reduce the length of time a pump is on, and in turn the amount of energy it uses. In addition, a timer can extend the life of your pool pump or heater, saving you money on repairs and replacements in the long run.

SRP Electric can ensure that your timer is installed properly and is performing at optimal levels. Intermatic’s diverse lineup of electronic, mechanical, and specialty controls, surge protection devices, and other accessories and enclosures can help you make the most of your pool or spa this summer.
