OP did say that there is an isolator near the geyser as well. Actually checked the installation at my place and I only have the DB switches in the DB box, but I also know that there is an isolator per geyser in the ceiling

Think I'll try this connection next:
Not going to work

Need to do following

Run black wire as shown in pic
Remove red from CB-6 move to timer5
Run new thick red wire from CB-6 to timer4
Run red wire link from CB-6 to timer1 ( alternative wire link from timer4 to timer1)


Timer3 is not connected
