I have have my skimmer set up on Programming Logic so that it acts a certain way when we feed, do maintenance, etc.

How can I tell it to also turn off every day at 6.30am and turn back on at 10.30am as well without messing up the programming logic?

TIA!

Can you do a screen shot of your logic so I can see what you have? So I can give you answer.

Select PL #4 and set the function to AND
Input 1: PL #3
Input 2: Select an usused TIMER function

Go to that TIMER function settings page and specify the ON/OFF times, including days to run the schedule.

Go to the Switch channels page and select the outlet powering the skimmer, set the function to PL #4.

You are essentially taking your combined logic from PL #3 (PL#1 / PL#2) and combining it with a new function (TIMER) on Programmable Logic #4. This new PL function will now have all 3 functions combined (Feed / Maintenance delay / Timer). Assign it to your powerbar outlet and it will now run based on the set commands from all 3 functions.

Brilliant! Thanks. :)
