I want to add a timer/programmer to the domestic hot water control on my ce
ntral heating. The system uses Sunvic "MOMO" type valves so at each thermo
stat there is a "common" and "open" and "close" terminal. I have managed t
o get the central heating working on a simple programmer and double throw t
ype thermostat but the hot water circuit is at present controlled by a sing
le Honywell cylinder stat which annoyingly often switches on during the nig
ht so I need to put a timer in this circuit to stop it coming on at night a
nd gain more control over the water heating.
The Honeywell cylinder stat has three wires going to it RED (common) YELLOW
(1) and BLUE (2) . I thought initially I might be able to simply interrup
t the supply with a single pole switch on/off timer in the RED common wire
but thinking about it I guess it might cause havoc with the motorised valve
s especially if it switched off half way though an open/close action. I hav
e a double throw mechanical time switch which I thought might do the trick
but I am uncertain of how to put it in the circuit. I only have access to
the three core cable going to the cylinder stat.
Can it be done?

I /think/ this should work? :-
Live/line to your timer common and "Day" timer contact to stat common
gives normal wiring (as your thought to simply interrupt the supply).
Add wire from "Night" timer contact to whichever stat connection that
turns the valve off.
