    Look at page 4 of the timer manual and page 12 of the heater manual and that should give you an idea obout the connection. Use spa and com on the timer.

    Re: Wiring Pentair UltraTemp to Intermatic RC2163

    Thank you for your reply. Manual for the Intermatic is missing unfortunately. I have three wires coming out of it:
    -orange (was connected to "L" terminal on old Hayward heat pump)
    -blue (was connected to "C" terminal)
    -green (was connected to "H" terminal).
    Page 12 for Pentair presents well more options . Any advise?
    Thank you

    Found manual for RC 2163 on-line. Pentair Heat Pump has SPA- COM- POOL connectors on the diagram. Intermatic has C (COMMON)-H (HIGH)-L LOW).
    Which wire from Intermatic goes to H and which one to L?
    Thank you

    Re: Wiring Pentair UltraTemp to Intermatic RC2163

    Assuming you want only to heat the spa, use the SPA and COM terminals on the heater and use the H (green) and C (blue) on the timer. Tape or wire-nut off the L wire on the timer.

    Re: Wiring Pentair UltraTemp to Intermatic RC2163

    Thank you. I do want to heat both: pool and spa. Does it mean that Green wire from timer goes to POOL?

    Re: Wiring Pentair UltraTemp to Intermatic RC2163

    You should be able to put a jumper between POOL and SPA and it'll heat whenever the timer is on. I'd call Pentair and make sure that's how it should be done.

    Got response from Pentair: ORANGE goes to POOL; BLUE to COM; GREEN to SPA.
    Thanks again.
