Timer on pool pump

My pool pump runs on 110, and it's an inground pool, I need to put a timer on the pump, would I go thru the on and off switch to hook up the timer? and what sort of timer would be best?
Thank You Jeannie

You need to buy an inline switch and install it in the electrical line somewhere. The somewhere depends on whether you want the switch inside or outside and where you actually want it.

You may have to add some additional cable, as simply cutting the cable probably won't allow you enough slack.

My switch is on the wooden fence beside the pump, I was hoping to keep the timer in the same area, and yes I want to set it to run 8 hrs aday and then shut off, I just bought a new replacement hayward super 11 pump and haven't installed it yet, needed to find out if I could put a timer on at the same time, the pump is a 1hp. If that mattered???? I don't know. Please any assistence would be Soooo greatfully appriciated. Thank You Jeannie

Intermatic sells an outdoor rated timer. They have 240 and 120 volt models. They are not cheap, but do a good job.

Wire it before the shut off switch, so that it will always have power.
