    Thank you both. I set it up with two events, and will try to test it when I can light a fire. A little warm today...

    Seems like you can do this without timers. Two events:

    Event 1 - use trigger "This device had its value set and is greater than"
    IF WaterTemp was set and has a value that is greater than 159
    AND IF RecircPump has a value equal to Off
    Then set RecircPump ON

    Event 2 - use trigger "This device has been/for at least..."
    IF RecircPump has been On for at least 3 hours
    AND WaterTemp is less than 155
    THEN set RecircPump OFF

    I want a pump to run for three hours when the water is too hot. My system of tanks and non-controllable heat sources (wood stoves) means there are sometimes significant stratification and varying temps across the tanks.

    How do I program the following?

    If WaterTemp => 160, Run RecircPump for 3 hours [regardless of water temperature during the 3 hours]

    Turn Off electric heaters

    If after 3 hours WaterTemp < 160, Stop RecircPump, exit

    If WaterTemp => 160, Run RecircPump until WaterTemp < 155, exit
    Timers in HS3 work as an actual Timer. Think of a Stop Watch or the time command on unix. They count UP not DOWN.

    You would set your event to when time equals 3 hours or to be greater than 3 hours.
