im replacing an old intermatic 14 day timer which connects to my 3/4 pump. I have an indexer valve so i'll just set it to one zone and have the pump turn on/off. Secondary project will be to replace the indexer valve with individual zones...but thats for another day.

Connect power wires the black wire to L1 in and the white wire to L2 in. Connect the pump wires to the outs by the same colors.
