    Intermatic Valve Actuator

    If the actuator is mounted vertical, can water enter through the back where it mounts to valve, and into the actuator?

    Re: Intermatic Valve Actuator

    Both the Jandy and Intermatic actuators have 3 O-rings on the shaft according to their manuals. I think they are made by the same factory. The Jandy manual says:

    The JVA has three seals which should be lubricated once a year. One o-ring is located on the bottom of the actuator where the plastic shaft exits the housing and two (2) O-rings located in the top cover near where the shaft exits the top of the housing.

    I have one of my 3 actuators mounted vertically and never had a problem with water intrusion, but I live in SoCal and don't get that much rain.

    Thanks, here in Florida plenty of rain, i thought it might be the cover gasket, but that looks fine its only 3 months old. There is not alot of water, could also be lubricant running down...
