Re: Timer for autmatic watermaker flush


 

Yes, and let me add a warning about a potential mistake...I made it when I first did this.

Mark McGovern is correct about the solenoid that he says I used, but it was not the first one I used. The first one I used was indeed 24 volts, but AC rather than DC voltage. There are many 24VAC solenoid water valves available because this is what many lawn sprinkler systems use. And that is what I used until it failed about 2-3 months later. Be sure to check for DC Voltage:

Eric,

This programmable timer is very similar if not identical to the one that Bill Rouse has posted about using for this purpose:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/224040425984

You also need a 24vdc solenoid like this one for the timer to control the flow of freshwater:  https://www.burkert-usa.com/en/products/solenoid-valves/water-solenoid-valves/221602
