This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you own and maintain a pool in an area where the temperature drops below freezing for even a single night in winter, you're going to want one of the pool timers with freeze protection on our list. They'll kick your system on as soon as the mercury dips below a set point, ensuring that water doesn't turn to ice inside your pipes, potentially damaging any number of components.

Editor's Notes

January 10, 2019:

Given the limited comparable features among the market's models, features like digital readouts and well-made enclosures were among the most important advantages in ranking. Pretty much all of the items on our list are from one of two companies making reliable entries (Intermatic and Tork), and a lot of those differ only in their ability to work with single- or dual-speed pool pumps.

Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
