After maintaining my GF's hot tub over the last year, I volunteered to maintain the in-ground pool this year (other than opening and closing it). I understand the multi-port valve on the DE filter, but there are two 3-way valves that I can't figure out. One of the 3-ways is right before the filter pump, so that controls water coming out of the pool and the other 3-way is after the filter and multi-port valve, so that controls water returning to the pool. That is as far as I got.
Please look at this image of the equipment pad: pool-equipment - Google Drive
The 3-way valves in question are the two black valves on the bottom of the image shown in their current position. These are Jandy Never Lube valves. Are these valves set correctly for normal operation? There is no marks on the tubes coming out of the pad and going into the valves to indicate what they come from. I assume the pair on the left are the two skimmers and one drain. I assume the pair on the right are the two return jets. (I think the pool has two return jets...we just opened today, so the water is a bit too murky to see the jets.)
I did visit the Jandy website and found an exploded diagram of their 3-way valves: http://www.jandy.com/~/media/zodiac/...h/h0500600.pdf It looks like the portion of the diverter that closes a port is directly under the straight part of the handle that you grab with your hand. Based on that, it looks like the valve on the left is completely open and the valve on the right has the right side of the valve closed. Unless there is a reason for this, I think the handle on the right valve should be positioned like the one on the left. Can anyone help me out with this?
