AC3 Program -- Possible?

I have a kalk stirrer and an ATO. I want the Kalk stirrer to stir for two mins every 3 hours, and then I want the ATO to turn on every last 30 minutes for 10 mins. before it stirrers again...

Example:

If Time > 06:00 Then KS1 ON //Kalk Stirrer
If Time > 06:02 Then KS1 OFF // Kalk Stirrer

If Time > 8:30 Then KP1 ON // ATO Pump
If Time > 8:40 Then KP1 OFF // ATO Pump

If Time > 09:00 Then KS1 ON //kalk stirrer
If Time > 09:02 Then KS1 OFF //Kalk stirrer

If Time >09:30 Then KP1 ON //ato pump
If Time >09:40 Then KP1 OFF //ato pump

etc..etc.... I would do this for every 3 hours.. would this work? .. also is there an easier way to program this on the AC3?

Thanks -- Kevin

OSC 002/058 ON/OFF Then KS1 ON

On for 2 min off for 58 min

OSC 010/050 ON/OFF Then KP1 ON

So I take it you are turning off the ATO with its water level sensor but just turning it on 10 minutes and hour, as a safety or slow fill?
