    Actually Boots, Article 430, Section 5 allows this.

    Why do you keep arguing this without reading the stuff I post? This links posted reference the code directly, they aren't some yahoos interpretation of what is "right".

    It does not, you effin maroon. If you believe it does, go on a site used by licensed electricians, and get their agreement, and return here and post the link. Absent that, you speak with forked tongue.

    P.S. I read the Mike Holt page, and that's about a motor load, and says nothing about a branch circuit's fixed-wiring requirements. The motor is a load connected to a branch circuit.

    I mispoke its a 20amp breaker with a 110 volt line in which the pump is plugged into. Could using a timer like this work

    http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-WH21-Electric-Water-Heater/dp/B00002N5FP

    All it would be doing is simply turning on and off the pump which would controling 1 zone with 3-4 sprinkler heads attached to it.

    It'll work - but it's pretty cheesy. K-Rain makes a 110V version that is more suited to irrigation, the 1110 or 2110. They even have a model that can have a rain sensor attached to it.

    Agreed its cheesy! Tell me what does the K-Rain get me the timer I linked doesnt? (I'm not trying to challenge more curious)
