My PB has one last thing to do and my pool will be finished.
I finally got him to connect the deck jets to the feature pump where I wanted them.
He installed a 2 way Jandy Valve in the plumbing going to the sheer waterfalls and it worked ok.
Then he installed a Pentair CVA24 Actuator but electrician could not wire it.
I do not have Automation. What I do have Intermatic Multiwave. It has switches controlled with a remote control or on the unit.
Intermatic had electrician install an expensive add on board that did not work.
I told the electrician to get a 24v transformer to switch the actuator on and off.
But from more research I see that it will need more than that as there are 2 circuits in the Actuator for clockwise and counter clockwise movement.
I'm not much of an electrician but sent the email below to the PB.
Anyone have some experience, info or ideas? Thanks.
"Please let the electrician know that besides the 24v transformer he may need a SPDT relay to complete the installation of the valve actuator.
I can’t find a wiring diagram for the Pentair CVA24 Actuator but here is the diagram for the Intermatic Actuator which is similar:
Also please tell him I would prefer a 2 way non Pentair Actuator such as the Jandy or Intermatic.
I was told I could operate the valve manually without power and this can’t be done with the Pentair without removing the actuator."
