    Jandy Valve with another brand ortega actuator: possible?

    I am replacing a suction side 3 port copper Ortega valve with a CPVC valve. I have an actuator on the Ortega valve. I would like to use a jandy valve as they are about 1/2 the price of an ortega valve. Can i adapt my current actuator to work with a jandy valve.

    No idea; I've never even heard of Ortega. Can you post some pictures so perhaps we can toss some ideas around?

    An Ortega valve is a 3-way valve with the common port coming out opposite the handle. It requires 180º operation and so does the standard 3-way (Jandy) valve. I don't see why you couldn't adapt the actuator to the Jandy valve.
