    Stratos aerator timers

    I replaced the old shotgun shell timers with some new shotgun shell timers.Does anybody know how often they should cycle on? Donít know if I trust these!

    I have never timed mine but they keep my fish in good shape. Fill your livewell at home and set it to timed recirculate. Check it for proper operation.

    I might be wrong but I think when they are set in the auto mode they are on thirty seconds, then off two minutes.

    Do you have just an auto/man switch or do you have 3 switches like
    my 96 and 97 has, off/fishing, auto/man switch and a timer switch of 2.4.6 settings?

    check and make sure you have steady power from the switches.I thought my timer
    was bad and ended up being the auto side of my switch corroded.It should
    kick on as soon as you select auto, run a minute then off up to 6.I say that
    because i don't know the model timer you have and mine is off a max of
    6 minutes.From there it should run the same cycle until the battery dies.

    Amazon has both the 4 pin and 4 pin shotgun shell style timers. Check to see which model you need.

    3 pin timer runs the pump for 1 minute and off for 3 minutes.
