1oloo, you've asked three different questions about timing circuits.  How about telling us exactly what the application is and what you're trying to achieve and we should be able to suggest a solution for you. 

If you only need to switch equipment on and off on a 24H cycle, by far the easiest solution is to buy a mains powered timer which plugs into a wall socket.  This will cost a couple of Pounds / Dollars.  Don't forget that you can plug a wall-wart into the switched socket if you need to control smaller equipment.

You're not interested in buying one then?

What do you want the timer to do ? 
The obvious answer is use an Arduino.
