    Ive got my lights,fan and PC all in one surge protector which is plugged into a timer. No problems. Although if you are using HPS i believe some normal timers cant handle them

    Thought so

    You can get a heavy duty lumii timer for around 9 quid

    I personally would go for a contactor myself and switch the load properly.

    If using separate timers make sure you space them 15 mins apart

    Put them on different circuits if u can. Different outlets at least and 2 surge protectors. That much wattage is going to generate serious heat if u bunch them all together.

    Then you have to add in whatever other electronics ur using.

    Gotta keep safe to keep the revolution alive.

    It's just general advice for when lots of timers and ballasts are firing up. If they all go off at the same time and they are different cheap timers, I've known them to stick on or off

    If you had 1 minute timers, just leaving a minute between would be ok

    Contactor is what I would use if switching more than one or two lights
