My heater is broken and leaking. I'd like to re-plumb and put a diverter valve so I can bypass the broken heater and allow me to continue to run the pump until a new heater is installed.

Below is a picture of my plumbing. Can I get some advice on what parts to order and the easiest way to install a diverter to bypass the heater?

I've already ordered a Jandy 3-way diverter (2inch).

Need to see a wider picture to see the plumbing after your chlorinator. You already have a CV on your pool output. Just need to put the 3 way diverter before the heater input and T it between the CV and the chlorinator. Fitting the T in will be the tricky part with your setup.
