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:
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/Intermatic/Documentation/Time%20Switches/Mechanical%20Time%20Switches/24%20Hour/T100%20Series/T106R%20Instructions.ashx
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 do I connect my Jandy AE-TI heat pump to my intermatic T104P3


1) Copy following link for wiring illustration ... assuming timer is supposed to control pool pump:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T104-to-contactor.jpg

2) T104P is 240Volt (208-277V) SPDT timer in P plastic outdoor enclosure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

3) Jandy AE-TI is 208/230V pool heater.
http://www.bestbuypoolsupply.com/media/aemanual.pdf

4) Page 13 of Jandy manual shows single-phase residential wiring diagram.

5) First of all, power to main contactor is not interruped by timer, since this powers 24Volt transformer that controls the chip board and general operation.

6) The timer is connected to 'Auto-heat contactor.'
The confusion is what Load connects to this contactor? The water pump? Load is shown on diagram as 'pump time clock.'
I assume the load is the PUMP??

Pool time switches pool on, but off does not trip off, and can't do it manual. When I push it on off, the pool pump tries to stop but continutes running. Have to use breaker box.


Model number of timer is not known.
Is this new installation? Or installation that worked before and recently stopped working?
If the manual override lever on timer does not turn Load on-off, then 1) wiring is wrong or 2) timer has gone bad or 3) pump has a short.
I suspect a short since you say the pump 'tries to stop running.'

Just intstalled a T104M according to the diagram and all the diagrams found on the web. The clock timer doesn't work. I can manually shut off the pump from the timer. I thought it was a bad tim


T104M is 208-277 timer mechanism that fits inside any Intermatic enclosure.
If voltage is not correct, then clock motor will not operate.
Since you did not say what voltage, I assume you have 240Volt pool pump.
Open following link to see the many ways to wire this timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html
It is possible that you have the Load and Line wires reversed.
Line wire come from circuit breaker, and Load wires go to pump.

If the T104M mechanism is part of a control panel with more than one timer, and/or a freeze control, then re-post question with more specific information.

Hi - My Intermatic T101P3 timer motor stops after it turns off the pool pump. I have one start and one stop time in a 24 hr period. I have to manually start the pump at the timer in the morning,...


Sounds like the clock leads are on the wrong posts, or at least the hot one is. If if was moved to the load side then manually starting the timer will also power up the clock motor. As soon as the clock trips the off timer, the pump and the clock motor are both off. Examine the clock leads to the wiring diagram inside the clock box cover to ensure they are connected correctly. I bet you'll find one of the wires is misplaced.

Sounds like you lost power to the timer. Look in your electric panel for a tripped breaker. Turn it OFF then back ON.

Could be loose wiring, or bad clock motor.
Check if wires are connected, and make sure only the copper part of wire and no insulation is under the screw plate.
Make sure all wires are same gauge so that screw plate clamps down on wires.
Open following link to identify timer and then add a comment with model number and voltage for possible help. Tork T1100 series has replacement clock motor.

Fixya does not sell Intermatic P1353 timer. We answer questions for do-it-yourselfers like yourself.
Open following link for Intermatic P1353 manuals with wiring and programming diagrams.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#P1353

1) It is very likely that pump wires will change over color-for-color, but I am electrician and would never do that because I would not want to burn out my new motor without poking around first. I would look at manual for old motor and compare with manual for new motor. I would certainly read the new manual and compare where wires are connected to timer.

2) As a general rule with P1353 timer, High speed connects to terminal 4. Low speed connects to terminal 6. The remaining wire connects to terminal 3 with a jumper wire to terminal 5.

3) This information applies only if you are replacing a 2-speed pump, and timer was wired by diagrams shown in the manual, and timer is correctly programmed for MODE2 2-speed pump.

4) You can add a comment for more free help. I will answer back. I know this timer front and back, it is complicated for novice. And you should remember that I do not know what is inside your pump manual unless you tell me, and I do not read minds.

5) You can also pay for fixya expert to work with you while you work on pump.

Installing a outdoor timer t104m this is for the pool cleaner,need wireing instruction.next to pool pump timer.


Open following link for wiring diagrams and manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

240Volt T104 can be wired many different ways.
What is the significance of 'next to the pool pump timer?'
Are you getting power off the 240V pool pump timer to operate the new T104? This is perfectly fine. The pool pump wires would bring power from the breaker box.
Is the new T104 going to control 120Volt lights? The timer can do that, it just has to be wired correctly.
In any case, the T104 has 240Volt (or 277V) clock motor, and clock will not operate with 120V

If you add specific details, I can help with exact wiring diagram for your project.
