    Multiple ON/OFF times with Jandy Aqualink?

    I want to turn my pump on and off about 4 times/cycles a day. The manual says it has a maximum of two timed settings per equipment, but I'm wondering if there is a way around this, like maybe using the spare aux channels?

    I believe it's version3 on the handheld.

    I'm not sure about yours, but I have an RS-8 that's 10 years old, and had 8 different program schedules for the pump last year.

    If you have spare relays I don't see why you couldn't do it. Just wire the relays in parallel with the other relays and set the events for the new relays different than the original. Since they're on the same phase it wouldn't even matter if they both came on at the same time.

    Re: Multiple ON/OFF times with Jandy Aqualink?

    Thanks guys for the help. I have a P4 model, and I think I'm stuck with just two programming times for each relay.

    As it turns out, my panel has I think four relays, so I have two that are free at the moment.

    See page 10-11 for a diagram of the panel in this PDF.

    I've done basic house wiring before, but I'm unfamiliar with how to wire relays in parallel. Would I just jump the two wires from the free relay to the existing pump relay?

    What you jumped are just the load wiring to the pump. You would also have to jump the line wiring from the breakers.

    OK, so is this correct?
