    Rebuild vs replace diverter valves


    I expect to be doing a bit of plumbing for my filter/pump swap. However, I'd prefer to preserve as much of the original plumbing as is prudent. I have several Jandy 3way diverter values w/grease fittings in the mix; does it make sense to try and rebuild/refurbish these or simply replace them?

    With proper maintenance those valves will last nearly forever. Or they make a retrofit kit that will transform them into never lube valves. I wouldn't replace the valve body unless there was some reason to tear out that section of plumbing or there was something obviously wrong with it.
