Great little timer
31 Aug 2012
By
, Peterborough
"I just wanted a simple timer to switch a pump on and off at fixed times of the day at a reasonable price - and that's exactly what I got. I couldn't be more pleased. Its current switching capacity is amply sufficient which will give it a long life and switching can be set as many times in the day as is needed in 15 minute sections."

"Very simple to fit and use. The only issue for us 'oldies' is the size of the setting pegs, they are very small.
Brilliant product for the price.

"Good value, BUT very fiddly connections. Not really enough room and terminals small and difficult to connect especially when you are working in a confined space. I would recommend pre-wiring before fitting"

LAP Immersion Timer
5 Sep 2012
By
, Edinburgh
"This was a replacement for a similar item which lasted about 2 years. There are cosmetic differences between this item and the previous model and manufacturer's names are different but the new item has identical mounting and connections.
The problem with the older model was that the internal switch got hot so plastic deformed.
Hopefully the new item has better internal components. Time will tell!"

"A bit fiddly to wire up, I mounted mine with the connection block upwards which made it easier to see, and I recommend inserting the earth wire first. Clock has been running for 3 weeks now using peak time solar panel output, no problems so far."

Nice timer.
11 Jul 2012
By
, Leicester
"All in all a good product. Does what it says on the tin.
Only thing that was a little difficult was the size of the fixings for placing the electric cable in. They are quite small and don't go back a long way so pretty fiddly to get the cable in there. Especially two earths in the one hole!
Once the wires are in and it's fitted up though it all works fine."

Mechanical timer for electrics
28 Nov 2011
By
, Surrey
"Wanted a cheap reliable timer for outside security lights.
Only slight fault is the lack of space to fit the screwed input and output clamps supplied to hold cables in secure position.
Adjustment of on off sequence in quarter hour increments. Very easy to set up but instructions do not say which position of the incremental segments are in or out (on or off).

Good basic Imersion timer

"This is a basic mechanical timer. Terminals could do with a bit more distance from the cable clamps. Earth terminal bit fiddley to get two cables in, as under cover screw post. But it does the job."
