To set timer, you lift and rotate dial. Line up current time with the word Time located to lower right of dial.

Next, place trippers on dial. Dark trippers are OFF and light-colored trippers are ON

Tork 1101 is 120V timer.
120V Black Hot wire from circuit breaker connects to Pole L
There is a brass bridge that connects Pole L and Pole 1 >> if this is missing, put a jumper wire that connects both Poles
120V White Neural wire from circuit breaker connects to Pole X
White wire going to Load (lights, fan, motor) connects to Pole X
Black wire going to Load connects to Pole 2

Your question is very big because recirculation systems have a lot of parts and options.

Please open following link for re-circulation system resources that show pictures of how the system works. After reading information, add a comment with more questions.
The page shows two different types of Taco timers. One timer is programmable and the other timer is called analog timer where the timer dial rotates just like a clock. Small pins located on dial face are set inward or outward. As the dial rotates, the pins move a tiny on-off lever that turns the pump on-off. The pump can also be set to operate thermostatically. You choose either timed operation or thermostatic operation using slide-switch located under timer dial.

Look at, and read information on link above. Try some things on your timer so you are familiar. And then add a comment with specific description of your Taco timer, and include what you have done so far.

Upvote the help.

How to wire an intermatic t174 with a W433-1 TIMER FOR A 220 VOLT MOTOR

Verify that the clock motor is 220v. On the posts where the supply wires (line) and pool motor wires (load) they should each have a post for each of their two wires. If you do not have four posts, this is NOT a 220v timer.

How to set the clock using 24 hr and 12 hr clock

Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
Add comment and describe timer in detail.
Usually if a timer offers choice between 24-hour clock with 1-thru-24 displaying for current time, vrs 12 hour am- 12 hour pm, then the choice is first thing you set before programming. The choice is made before setting current time, and usually this is accomplished with single button push that toggles between 12 and 24 on the display.
The product manual has specific steps.
Not every timer offers 12-24 choice.
Again, add comment and describe timer in detail, or attach photo for best available resources.

My Pentair pool pump runs continuously even though it is set to auto on outside & inside panels.

If your pump is running constantly either the timer is set to "manual on" or the timer has failed. Check the settings on your timer. Usually on a mecanical timer the manual on lever is just under the 24 hour dial. On the electronic timers it is controlled by a relay that if it fails defaults to always run.

I am looking for the most energy efficient way to run a 10,000 gallon indoor pool 365 days a year. Would i need a timer to optimize my electricity savings with the use of a Pentair IntelliFlo 4x160 pump or...

You run a pool pump based on pumping volume compared to pool volume and long enough to turn the water over frequently enough to keep it balanced and clear.

You should have no need to run it 24 hours a day to accomplish that since the pool is indoors and safe from the effects of weather and sunlight.

What you will want to do is determine the minimum amount of time then the pump needs to operate to keep the water balanced and clear based on fill water makeup, your chemical choices and bather loads and then set the timer to run the system for that amount of time and the pump for the speed required.

If you really want to be sure you are as efficient as possible you will need to look at the pump curve for your exact model and look for the point on the curve the pump is most efficient at, speed/volume wise and run it at that setting for the time you find thru experience mentioned above. That way the pump moves the most water it can at it's most efficient point for as little time as is required to keep the pool clean.

I hope I worded that in a way that makes sense.

Pentair pool pump vs 3050

These pumps should not be hooked into an intermatic mechanical timer. It should always have power supplied to it, meaning it should be installed to the line side of the power supply. Scheduling is done either in pump itself or thru an external controller such as a suntouch or easytouch controller, etc. When you have it wired into a timer like intermatic, power is interupted to the pump every day when the timer setting is for off. It is very hard on the drive of this pump, it does not like it, and will shorten the life of the drive. The pump was designed to always have power supplied to it, even when it is not scheduled to run. This may be the problem you are experiencing. HTH
