Does this look right?

Fallback OFF
Set OFF
If Time 09:00:00 to 09:00:30 Then ON
If Time 15:00:00 to 15:00:30 Then ON
If Time 20:00:00 to 20:00:30 Then ON
If Time 00:00:00 to 00:00:30 Then ON
If Time 03:00:00 to 03:00:30 Then ON

Basically trying to set it up to mix for 30 seconds five times a day. My ATO pump is Ph control so I'm not worried there.

Sorry that will not work but nice try. The If time code does not work with seconds. Try this

Fallback OFF
OSC 000:00/000:30/287:30 Then ON

Thanks!

Looks like I need to redo the code for my ATO to. Any suggestions?

I had

Fallback OFF
If pH2 > 8.35 Then OFF
If pH2 < 7.70 Then ON

You will have to be a little more specific When I see ATO I think of it as automatic top off ie fresh water needed due to evaporation. Your ph does not change much if you are low on water from evaporation. Do you have some type of float setup? Do you use kalkwasser in your fresh water top off system? Explain what you have going and I will see what I can do...

he runs the ATO through the kalk reactor...

your ATO needs to be depending on float switch(es) with the pH as a backup. Obviously you cant control your water level based on pH alone.
