    Default Finally had to change timers

    We have so many power outages in my area, due to trees falling on power lines and/or careless drivers (going too fast) plowing into power poles, that my aquarium timers finally gave out. These were the complicated rotary dial kind, and after being reset so many times, they wouldn't hold their position anymore.

    Finally found some simpler digital kind that have a back-up battery to tide them over during an outage. So far, they seem to be working. For once, the instructions provided are clear and easy to understand. No PhD needed with these! LOL!

    Simpler is usually better.

    I use this one by Westinghouse on my main tank for the past several years. No removable parts to lose, just push pins up and down and rotate the dial. It has a loud click when it goes off.

    I also have an Intermatic that I have had and used on and off for at least a decade, though not all of that was aquatic use. But it has removable pins to set the time so I have misfiled a set of pins for on/off, but its quieter.

    YMMV
