So this pool came with a "pit" full of control valves that are packed way too close together. Not a problem when it was built 30 years ago, but of course half of them are leaking (and it's not the cheapo PVC ball valves!)
So I plan to dig out the dirt to get access, then replace the leaking valves, while bringing them up to an accessible height.
I need to replace 2x 2" 3-way diverter valves, and 1x 1.5" 3-way diverter valve. I have a vague idea of what they do, but not exactly. They seem to control flow to/from the pool/jacuzzi (and possibly multiple return circuits). Two are stuck in position so I haven't messed with them.
I currently have no automation but I may eventually get a Pentair Intellitouch (just got a Pentair VS 3 HP pump which would make the interface easy). I know Jandy sells valves which can be actuated with a 12-volt system. And in fact my solar system has a couple of those in place. So is it best to just get Jandy replacement for the diverters with manual handles, then get the actuators later? Which Jandy valves are right for my system?
