Pump Timer

I have a question regarding an in-ground swimming pool pump timer. I have a Sand Dollar SD-60 filter. I hunted all over the pump for the HP, the voltage, something that would tell me what amp/voltage timer to get. The pump is wired to a sub-panel with one 30 amp 2-pole breaker and one 20 amp single-pole breaker. I'm thinking the 30-amp breaker is for the pump and the 20 amp for some exterior receptacles.

Should the timer be wired before the sub-panel or after it between the panel and the pump? Is the amperage for the breaker enough information to tell me what type of timer to get?
