I just encountered an odd problem that I hope someone can help me with. I have a broken Jandy Check flow valve. The entire valve mechanism broke apart from the cover some how. I found the spring in the Paramount water valve for my in floor cleaning system (was jamming it), but the flapper and axle are still missing. (Shout out to Jim the tech Guru at Paramount who helped me figure out what was going on.) That's not the odd part though.
So I went to take the Jandy valve apart, and as soon as I started touching the water in the valve, I started to get little shocks. I shut off the power at the breaker, and still got some little shocks, but seemed less. I have never gotten a shock from anywhere around my equipment, much less around the pool or from the pool water.
Read some of the old posts on grounding vs. bonding, but not sure what to make of this because it has only happened when touching the water by the equipment, while taking apart this plastic valve. In fact, I touch the water around the equipment all the time when I empty out my pump basket, and never had an issue.
Any ideas? Thank you!
