Looking at putting a low voltage timer switch/button by a water slide we have into our pool.
Want something that the kids can push and it will stay on for say 15 minutes. This will control a solenoid.
Ok any suggestions for that timer switch/button please?

What kind of low voltage are we talking about 12~24V?




I was thinking of a mains water proof switch as alternative????

You could also make your own Switch mechanism using parts from eBay relay timer and a water proof switch all enclosed in a IP rated box. But hey that's just me.

Thanks - that Outdoor Time Lag Timer Switch IP66 16A Weatherproof Timer Delay looks right.
Just now need to get my sparkie to track one down in NZ as that does not ship here.
Sparkie is old and "retired" (good mate) and have to make everything as easy as possible for him!

Have look at live-bait pump timers (usually 12vDC), used on boats.


They might do the job.
