    First confirm it is sucking in air. You can try the shaving cream trick and see if it gets sucked in when the system is running. If you do have a leak there, you can try several things such as maybe drilling the head off and then remove the top of valve and them use vise grips to remove screw. You can also try and seal the leak with some pool putty. Of course the best would probably be to replace the valve. I bit more work but at least you know it's foxed.

    I'm assuming you mean the threads in the plastic body are stripped? You could try going up a size on the screw. That may involve some careful drilling. Or purchase a C-clamp and squeeze it shut with that. It'll look hokey, though.

    Is it just stripped or is the housing cracked around it?

    If it's just stripped you can use some epoxy to fill the hole and then drill it out to accept the screw again.

    AB pool epoxy should work. Those screws should be self tapping so just drill the hole the size of the screw shank. Tap it if you're concerned.

    Re: 3 way Jandy valves

    Are you talking about AB brand epoxy pool putty or just epoxy with part A and part B ?

    I was talking about the A+B brand, but any brand will work. As Nova mentioned, going up one size screw will work as well.
