    Smile Old Jandy Ball Valve

    I need to replace the handle on a 1 1/2" Jandy Ball Valve. I am willing to buy a new valve (they are cheap enough) to get a replacement handle. The problem is the valve is old and the stem and handle are not the same as Jandy's valves today. The cap that covers the screw in the handle is the size of a dime whereas the cap on the newer valves is the size of a quarter. The stem and the interface of stem and handle have changed as well. Does anyone sell a replacement handle or still sell the old style valve? I know you are all wondering why I don't just replace the whole valve, and that's what I'll probably do, but I thought it would't hurt to ask.
    Thank you

    I found a solution. Jandy still sells a replacement handle for something else, but is identical. It labeled Zodiac part #R0444100
