Re: Light timers
I have been using the same timer for nearly a year, and it has worked
fantastic for me. I haven't had to replace the battery yet, despite
frequent power outtages throughout the year (gotta love the California
power shortage). I really like that I can push a button and it will
adjust the Daylight Savings Time on/off and that I can turn the lights
on/off without messing up the programming if I need to fix or adjust
something for a few minutes. It displays the time while it's working.
I think I paid about $35 for it at the local hardware store and it was
worth every penny - although paying $15 less for it would be even
better! Not affiliated with anyone, just a happy customer. :D

P.S. Thanks to everyone on this list! With your help, the algae I had
is quickly retreating and my plants are flourishing. Kudos!

Subject: Light timers
Amazon is offering the intermatic programable timer (DT17C) for about
$21 bucks. It is often sold for anywhere from $32-$40. These are
reliable timers and when the power goes out, they maintain time and
program settings with a standard battery. If you want to run your
substrate cables on moderately frequent on/off cycles, these timers
will allow up to 14 settings per day or 98 settings per week.
If you're interested:
or just search for "DT17C" or "intermatic timer"
