    Sounds overcompicated to begin with. Your time clocks should have a manual switch built into them. All three clocks are wired to the line side directly to the 230V or just the neutral and one hot leg for 115V? Seems that you should have a wire drop from one time clock to the motor. That same time clock has wires from the toggle and the second clock. Then the third clock from the toggle and then down to the booster? From what you are describing, it sounds as if you wired at least one clock in series with another?

If I am following your description correctly it sounds like the booster is tied to the wrong clock...You want the booster to run with the high speed which is 'the other' timer it sounds like.

Where can I find a Wiring diagram for hayward super II PUMP AND BOOSTER PUMP to new t106 intermatic and existing t104 for the booster?

Not sure if you will find such a diagram...
New installation?
Do the pumps have their own breaker?
Is your Super II pump a 2 speed?
What is the Thermostat for? Do you have a heater that you are trying to connect, so that the pump will come on when there is a demand for heat? Not really sure what the T-stat is mentioned for here?
You still only need to have 2 timers if I'm not missing something?
The T-106 will be for the Super II pump (presuming it is a 2 speed version) It will turn hi speed, on & off. or switch between them rather. I think I see why you may be inferring about a 3rd timer? You don't want to have pump running on "Low" speed continually. If so, Then you will need a 3rd timer (T-104) to provide power as Line to the T-106. The other T-104 will be for the booster pump for your cleaner.
The power for the Super II pump from the breaker will go to the 1st T-104 as "Line". Then from the Load portion of that timer, you will wire into the Line portion of the T-106. Following the instructions from the diagram at this website address for a PDF document:
you will complete the wiring to the Super II pump via the "Load" side of the T-106
The 2nd T-104 (pool sweep pump) will be wired: from the breaker to the "Line" portion of the timer. From the Load portion of the timer, you wire to the booster pump.

Good Luck

How can you wire a 2 speed motor to run only on high

You dont really need to change anything ... just keep it in high speed. If you really want to remove the switch, remove the cover, follow the wires and comlete the circuit that is for the high speed setting. You will need a volt meter with contunity setting to complete this task.

I just bought and installed a new intelliflo variable speed pump and now my Hayward pool sweep does not move to the shallow end. It only cleans the deep end and even that is not cleaned well. It seems to...

Thank you for posting your question here on

It is a pressure side cleaner...the booster pump only boosts the main pumps output pressure so much. Lowering the main pump output, the booster WILL NOT compensate by increasing its output. Lowering the pressure to the cleaner head will cause what you describe. Turn the new pump up to full speed to clean the pool then down lower to circulate water for chemical balance and maintenance.

If my hayward pool vac (AquaBug) is always connected when the pump is on (4 hrs/day), do I need (will I benefit) from a variable speed or 2-speed motor? Or, will I do fine just by downsizing from 1.5 HP to...

Probably go for the 2 speed, manufacturers often embellish on the hp ratings of pumps, you will definitely see more energy savings from a 2 speed. Just stay away from hayward, easy to work on for service tech's for break alot. Go with Pentair or Jandy they are worth the money.

Is there an advantage to a 2 speed over a regular 1.5 Hayward motor?

It cost's more and thats it unless you have the switching to run it. If so you can use low speed to clean and heat to save money on your elect. bill.

Hayward 1 hp pump clicks then shuts off

If it has an internal centrifugal switch, usually under the cover at the rear of the pump, it might be stuck. Check it got movement. The weights on the switch move out away from the shaft when starting. If that is ok, possible capacitor.
