Outdoor extension cord with timer??

nonews(Zone 7 NC)March 30, 2006

I have a fountain out on our patio. IÂm looking for an extension cord with a timer so that it would turn the pump on about 8 am and off at 7 or 8 pm. Then I would also want to plug in an additional pump. And all of this should be outdoors. I thought I had seen one in some catalog, but of course canÂt find it now. It had about a 6Â cord to plug into an outside outlet. Then you could plug in several extension cords. Have you seen one anywhere?

they sell them at the big boxes at christmastime. during the yr, i dont know. might be worth cking on some of the pond sites. you could probably plug an outdor timer into your GFCI outlet (big boxes have them yr round), then run a heavy duty outdoor ex cord with 3 plugs to where you want it as a temp fix til you find what you're looking for. good luck! tammy

Thanks, Tamelask. Saturday, I received a catalog from Charley's Greenhouse & Garden and actually found what I was looking for. It is a little pricey, but it is just what I was looking for - with 6 outlets. Boy, could I have pumps and fountains!! Nancy

Here is a link that might be useful: weatherproof timer
