Excellent. I'll be ordering the timer strip tonight.

great I was just at home depot and needed to get another one and forgot till I saw this thread. I think the timers from home depot or walmart will do fine just make sure if your plug is 3 pronged to get a timer that is grounded usually the heavy duty ones are 3 prong

I've gone through a few of those analog heavy duty grounded timers. They just stop working after a while. The ones I like now which are double the cost @ $20 each are the Intermatic DT17 Heavy duty grounded digital timer. It rates at 1850 watt resistive @ 15 amps. Plus you can program each day different if you choose and there is no mechanical plastic gears that go clunk to turn timed switch on and off. You can find them in HD or Lowes.

I've been using the coralife for a while now. It works great. You can program the pairs to switch up to every 15 minutes if you want, and has 4 always on.

I've used el-cheapo timers from Meijer/Walmart for years with no troubles.
