Custom Smart Timer

I bought the adjustable smart timers but never got to make them work properly... So I built my own fully adjustable smart timer. It can be adjusted from 5 to 22 minutes.

I would assume ballast pumps.

I'm in the process of dissecting the MC ballast switch relay system right now. Did you write your own ROM or something for the timers?

I need to rephrase... By "built my own" I meant that I gave the idea and flaws of the previous system to an electrical engineer and he designed and built the new smart timer... So I guess the correct phrase would be " had my own built "... I have no idea what ROM is...

it has 3 knobs, one for each pump. They are like the sound knobs. On one end is 5 minutes and on the other end it is 22 minutes. What is nice about the system is that once time is up you don't have to drain the ballast to be able to use the fill function again. Once fill time is up it shuts down to protect the impeller but if I turn the empty/fill ballast switch to fill again it will start filling until the preassigned time is up ( same goes for draining function ) . With the previous adjustable smart timers, once time was up the pumps run only for 10sec intervals or you had to empty the ballast to be able to run the pump for another 15min.
