Your filter does not need a time clock ~ it does not run on electricity. HIRE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN to run the necessary conduit, wires etc for the time clock, motor and heater hook-ups. All equipment has to be bonded and grounded. Most municipal codes require too that you bring most or all pool related items up to current code. That includes retrofitting your main drain with the new requirements if yours is an older system. This is not only for your safety but for others that may be using your pool. After all you would not want a major injury or a death to occur on your property or having a law suit pending. k

There is no timer on a Hayward pool pump. The timer, if so installed by the builder, would most likely be on the wall located near the pool equipment. It will be inside a rectangular metal box with a door ( 5" X 8" approx.) Inside this box would be a mechanical time clock either with a yellow face or a white one depending upon the brand. This timer would have trippers located (2) at some point around the face of the clock (which may resemble an analog clock). If you have no such device you will have to have a qualified electrician install one at the pool equipment pad area. Again if you have no clock then you will have to turn on the pump manually EVERY day without fail especially during the summer months. k
