    Weeping Jandy valve at low speed

    Just noticed that when pump is running on lower speeds, I've got some weeping from my closed-valve waterfall. Water continuously runs down the tile, noticeable enough it leaves ripples in the surface water. Doesn't seem to do it over 2500 rpm on the pump, but certainly does at 1700.

    Is there an easy fix for this? I've opened and closed valve several times, but it doesn't fix it. We only use waterfall when guests come over, or we need to aerate.

    I'm leary that if it continues I will get hardness buildup on the tile line.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Weeping Jandy valve at low speed

    Is the water coming from the top of the valve or from the pvc connection. You can get rebuild kits for the Jandy neverlube valves.

    If it's the pvc, this may work. Leak-B-Goneā„¢

    It sounds like the valve is leaking through. If that's the case, then as Carlos said, you can get a rebuild kit for it and that should solve the problem.

    Not leaking at the valve itself, water is seeping out the waterfall, so the valve isn't closing tight.

    Thanks for the tip on rebuild kits, didn't know these were repairable.

    Yes, that's one of the big selling points of the never lube valves, you can replace the handle as well as the O-rings without needing to replace the valve body.
