Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

I installed an Intermatic T-101 to control a filter pump for an above ground swimming pool. Ran a couple days and then stopped . Clock is working, but the trippers for "on" and "off" are not working. Is the single-pole single-throw the correct function, or do I need a double-throw switch? The motor is 120VAC.

There are two different trippers. 'On' and 'off'. The off will not turn it on. Get an 'on' tripper.

I don't think the timer runs on 240 volts does it? You can switch 240, but the timer uses 120 volts to run. You might check the connections and timer clock rating more closely. Also, the 'off' & 'on' trippers are different, make sure you use the right one.

SOURCE: intermatic timer for my pool pump - clock is not running

Usually the timer motor is bad when that happens. Replacement timer motors are available from websites like this one:
http://www.aplussupply.com/intermatic/timermotors.htm

Be sure to get the right voltage timer motor. Intermatic T101's and T103's use a 120 volt timer motor (Cat# WG1570) and the T104 uses a 240 volt timer motor (Cat# WG1573).

If you don't want to mess around replacing the timer motor, you can purchase a new timer, and as long as the existing enclosure is in good shape, just swap out the guts.

I would agree...
they are just a Toy! Sorry, I don't mean to be sarcastic, but that is how they are manufactured, not designed to last.
My customers come into my store all the time asking for pump replacements, and if they don't want to upgrade to a Real Pump and Filter, then I send them to:
Warranty Return Policy
To purchase another replacement toy,, like:
  • Intex
  • Wet Set
  • Krystal Klear
  • Cloud
  • Fun n' Sun
  • etc
and you get this...

When the pool s are purchased from walmart, kmart, target, etc
But...
If you can find it in your budget to upgrade, you can still use the same vessel, upgrade to a real filter & pump package set.

I need to know how to set this timer for a large swimming pool, and how long I need it to run, to keep it clean. I believe it is about 35,000 gals., in-ground pool.


You have Intermatic mechanical timer connected to swimming pool pump/filter.
Open following link to read about setting timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-operate-and-set-T104-timer.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
Lift and rotate dial until current time is lined up with stationary pointer.
Put on-off trippers on outer edge of dial.
Timer comes with 2 sets of trippers, and you can order replaceable trippers. Up to 12 sets of trippers can be added to dial for a total of 12 ON and 12 OFF events each 24-hour period.
For 35000 gallon, pump should run at least 6 hours each 24-hour period. During freezing weather, if pipes are above ground, you can remove trippers from dial, set override lever to ON position, and run pump 24-hours to prevent frozen pipes.

If you only have a Black wire, White wire and a ground wire, you are only wired for 120 volts. For 240 volts you have to have two Black wires or a Black and a Red as well as a White (neutral) and a ground.

Hi. Have you cleaned the flow sensor? Make sure that it moves freely throughout it's full range of motion. Sometimes things eventually will fail. If you have completed your checklist and the above mentioned then the replacement of the sensor unit seems to be the next logical step. Happy swimming

No, the pump should not be noisy. It sounds like you have picked up a foreign object in the pump housing. you may have to pull the face off to determine. OR the pump/motor is indeed defective and should be returned.
