what you need is ask the client to call you after three seconds ( isn't that too little a time to call a refresh !!!! ) so you should not be bothering the server side code for it.
you can use the meta refresh mentioned earllier in the page.
personally i like settimeout() because i face suspicious :| problems with meta refresh
look for 'refresh' on jguru forums and u might have see your answer already answered :)
