    2 speed pump wiring

    I currently have my pump wired to a t104 timer. Also have a Steiner pump wired to a second t104. I have a manual switch to switch from high to low.

    It's there a way to run the pump on high for the 2 hour period I run the Steiner (both on the second timer), with low speed running on the 1st timer?

    Not really ... because you have to be sure you do not supply power to the high and low speed lines at the same time.

    You need a more sophisticated setup than you can do with your existing timers is what jbizzle is saying.

    I think you would need a T106 instead of one of the T104. The T106 is a SPDT switch that could switch the speeds.

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    I just found this, so it looks like if I replace one t104 with a t106, I could run on high for 2 hours, and also have the Steiner on the same high circuit.

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Thanks. Ordered a t106 to replace my 104. Will be nice to have pump come on low at 9am, switch to high at 11am and back to low at 1pm, all off at 8pm. With Stenner running from 11-1. Looks pretty easy to rewire.

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Need some quick help. I have my T104 and T106 wired for 2 speed pump operation and Stenner running on high. I have 2 red and 2 black wires (1 each from the freeze protection, 1 ea from L1 and L2), where do I connect them?

    Edit: I have the T104 and T106 wired like this: http://waterheatertimer.org/images/H...mp-7-large.jpg
    Pump works on hi and low, Stenner comes on during high speed. I disconnected the freeze protection until I know where its wires go. I have 3 red and 3 black from it (I can remove its cover if I need to know where these come from). Can someone tell me which terminals (on T104 and/or T106) each wire goes to using the above diagram?

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Looks to me 1&3 from L1 and L2. Your feed for the time clock. Now the red and black for freeze protection looks to me it feeds the controller so they would go to 1&3 also to the T104.

    The T106 is just for the two speed pump. T104 is your timer.

    Give me more info on that freeze protection controller. Model number/ manufacturer

    I believe it is: https://www.1000bulbs.com/pdf/Inter-...-Operating.pdf
    Came with two T104's, changed out one with a T106 to get the 2 speed switching. Just not sure about the 6 freeze guard leads, since on page 4 some leads are going to both timers.

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Possibly those extra leads are for auxiliary equip. like a spa.......looks to me everything in that controller come factory wired so all you have to do is follow the lines on the diagram. Line in (feed 240v) and load (pumps). Only difference is you put a t106 for 2 speed pump.

    Just follow the diagram

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    The diagram is 2 t104 timers. I can follow the 2 lines to L1 and L2 for 240v, but the other 4 wires go to terminals 2&4 on left, and 1&3 on right. Seems they should all go to the t104 (somehow).

    The black n yellow are your high n low speeds n go to t106. The other white n green from motor go to t104. The green goes to ground bar

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Where are you getting the colors? You're talking from the freeze relay, right?

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    No the black yellow white green coming off your Hayward motor going to the T106 time clock. Black n yellow are your high n low speeds. You replaced one of the T104 with a T106 correct?

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Yes, I have the pump wired correctly and works fine per this diagram: http://www.inyopools.com/howtoimages...g&maxwidth=800

    It's the wires from the freeze relay I need to figure out.

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    As far as the relay goes it says it's factory wired. If not u need a more detailed diagram of the relay from manufacturer

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Yeah, that's what I'm trying to find. It's this unit (pf1103m), has 6 wires coming out, but I can't find any diagrams with t104 and t106 timers.

    Re: 2 speed pump wiring

    Looks like the thermostat for the freeze protection. All it is basically is a switch.

    Line n load but I'm surprised it doesn't come with a diagram. Sometimes they are on the cover of the panel or the device itself
