Thread: Y Valve?

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Y Valve?

    Here goes, I have a pool that was solar heater. this was fine but it was not winterized properly and was disconnected. I also have a hot tub with a heater that is 220 that I would like to disconnect. I now have a mini max 100 gas heater. I would like to install a y valve set-up at the heater to heat both. One Y to select which will be feeding the heater and one Y to choose where the heated water will be sent. I have a postage stamp for a back yard so everything is very close. Any suggestions? Also, where would be the least expensive place to buy these valves online?

    You want something like this?


    All my flow goes through the heater; it's just left off most of the time. When I want to heat the spa, I move the three-way valves to 100% in & out from the spa and fire it off.

    You can try googling it. Local pool store probably has them too. If you were a TFP supporter, you could check out the vendors on the discount forum.
