    Recommend moving the last entry of this thread (September 22nd, 2009, 7:56 pm) to Getting Started or Pumping Station so that it is more visible to those with specific knowledge of Jandy valves.

    The handle of the valve points to the water flow direction. It should also have a "pie shaped" piece on the opposing end that says "close" (IIRC!) to let you know what end of the valve is in the off position.

    I can try and get a pic up if that helps later, or maybe post one of the valve you have so that we can see it and advise.

    Bruce,
    A pic would be great. I have one at infow and 1 for vac and one for main drain. I finally found the word on there that says inlet. Why can't they just have open and close like those red ones..

    Re: Jandy valves

    Here's a pic of the JVA (automatic valve) instead of the manual valve, but the handle is the same for both. The handle is pointing to the right in the picture, which means that is the way the water is flowing. It says "off" on the opposite end, which means no water is flowing to the pipe to the right. (This valve is at the front of the circ pump, so technically no water is "flowing" through it as it is being sucked through the pipe as it enters the pump. Didn't want that to be confusing )

    I still get confused by these things, and I see them every day! You're right; you'd think they could make it easier!

    Hope the pic helps!
