Re: Timer for autmatic watermaker flush

Hi Mark,

I was just thinking of running a additional wire to the hot side of the fresh water  pump, with a switch in the circuit.

I would leave the pump circuit breaker off and when the timer is activated it would run the pump for a few minutes. My only concern is, can the timer carry the current needed for the pump.

This programmable timer is very similar if not identical to the one that Bill Rouse has posted about using for this purpose:

You also need a 24vdc solenoid like this one for the timer to control the flow of freshwater:
