reading the specs i should say its a timer for only one zone. you can use it for one zone switching or for the pump. sorry.

The wires on your new switch are intended for black = power .. white = neutral . and red = lights .. with two black wires on the old switch I am assuming that there is a bundle of white wires in that wall box, the white timer needs to join that bundle ... then you need to determine which black wire is the power from the electrical panel ( voltage tester) and connect to the black timer wire .. the red timer wire connects to the other black wire in the wall..
Please Vote !!

Old timer: Intermatic EJ500 & ST01C timers have a battery. Battery operates the clock motor. Red wire is for 3-way circuit [a hallway with 2 switches is a 3-way circuit].
Utilitec timer, clock runs on 120Volt circuit instead of battery. So clock has to have power.
How to connect wires:
Black timer wire connects to hot wire from breaker box.
Red (or blue) timer wire goes to landscape lights.
White timer wire connects to white neutral wire [or if no neutral is available, connect to bare ground wire].
Green timer wire goes to bare ground wire.
How to find black hot wire and white neutral wire inside box: Disconnect and separate wires so you can test. Use ordinary tester. Power is on. There is only 1 black hot wire inside each electrical box. Test each black wire to bare ground until tester light comes on > that identifies the black hot wire. Next, test black hot wire to white wires until tester light comes on > that is the neutral wire. Exception: This test does not necessarily work with 3-way switches since they reverse each time switch is thrown.

GE 15086 is a 7-day programmable timer. It has more wires than spring-wound timer because clock motor runs on 120V circuit, just like ordinary electric clock. The clock on spring wound timer operated by a spring.
If I understand correctly, the old timer has 2 wires. One of these wires is the Hot wire ... and that wire will connect to GE timer black wire.
The other wire from old timer goes to Load ... and that wire will go to GE timer red wire.
Instructions on a lot of these timers say, it timer doesn't work, then reverse the two wires described above ... this is because timer only works when Timer black connects to Hot.
You can also turn on power and test each wire that came off old switch to bare ground wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire.
GE timer Green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Moving on to GE timer white wire. This wire is necessary for the clock to run. This wire connects to Neutral wire which is usually white. You can test for Neutral by testing Hot wire to each white wire in box ... when tester comes on, that is Neutral.
If you do not have a white Neutral wire, then connect GE timer white wire to bare ground wire. This is not code, but it will work fine until you hire electrician to run Neutral into box.

Manual override lever is good overall test of T101 120Volt timer.
T101 timer has 3 terminals: A 1 2
See wiring diagram on following link:
Electricians test, they don't guess.
So test your wire:
Separate all wires for testing.
Use ordinary 2 prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Do not hold or touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. 120V circuit has only 1 Hot wire. If you have 2 Hot wires, you might have 240Volt circuit and need T104 timer. If circuit has 1 Hot wire, then that Hot wire must connect to terminal 1.
If you have NO Hot wire, then check circuit breaker.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire must connect to terminal A.
If you have NO Neutral wire, then additional wiring is needed, or circuit needs further testing to see what type of wiring you are working with.
Bare ground wires connect to green ground screw.
Notice there are small white wires also connected to terminals A and 1. These small white wires power the 120V clock motor. With Hot on terminal 1 and Neutral on terminal A, the clock motor will run, and yellow dial will rotate.
If timer dial does not rotate after connecting Hot ans Neutral, then test voltage across Hot and Neutral to make sure it reads 120V.
Your circuit should have 2 wires remaining.
These wires go to 120Volt load (fan, light, motor)
Connect these two wires to terminals A and 2.
Try manual override.
If Load turns ON-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If Load does NOT turn ON-OFF, then reverse Load wires on terminals A and 2.
