    Welcome to TFP. In order for us to help, we may need some more information about your pool. Is it possible for you to post a picture of your plumbing/filter/valve set-up?

    You probably just need to the set the cam position of the new actuator to the same location as the old one. Hopefully, you kept the old one. They should have included a manual which shows how to do it but if not, here is one.

    Re: adjusting actuator/valve cams

    For the life of me, I'll never understand why some builders insist on making the equipment maintenance areas so hard to access... . Yours isn't as bad as some I've seen, but if they turned the equipment around so it faced away from the wall, it's so much easier.

    The actuators come out of the box set to rotate 90 degrees, so if you wish to change this, you'll have to remove the actuator cover & adjust the cams to the same position that the previous ones were. As mas stated, the actuators should have a manual in each box, if not, he posted a link for it.
