Waterfall pump timers.

My homeowners association is contemplating having a timer installed on the pump which operates the waterfall in our neighborhoods pond. They feel this will save electricity, although the initial cost for the timer is over $300.  Does it save electricity or will turing the pump on and off cause too much wear and tear on it and/or possibly use more electricity.

These pumps are designed to automatically turn off and on, There is no pull in the current for initail start. It would seem that way but it's not. Computers operate the same way.

To be in two places at once is virtually possible.

Depending in the feel you're looking for, either really slow like 5 - 30 seconds for a peaceful misty effect, or quite slow like 1/30 - 2 seconds for a bit of moody blur. Helpful tips here: http://www.photography-art-cafe.com/what-is-shutter-speed.html
