    Help - Plumbing Question and Jandy Valve

    Afternoon,
    In the middle of cutting out the old plumbing and re-installation. I cut out a old Hayward 3 Port Valve that is bad. I bought a new Jandy 3 Port Valve.

    Issue is, the old Hayward Sat between the 1.5" Plumbing. The new Jandy Valve is Wider and doesn't fit between. HELP.

    QUESTION OF THE DAY:
    Can I put (3) 90degree Elbows together in a Row to give the added Width that I need? Or will that cause a flow issue into the pump.

    Pictured proposed below, HELP. PLEASE SAY YES ")
    Or Suggestions.

    Yes you can put the 90's like that, and yes it will affect the flow some. If I were going to do it I'd use 2" 90's and reduce right above the union or I'd probably even replace the union with a 2" one as well.

    You picture does not actually show enough of the problem to propose a solution.

    Back up and show what you are actually dealing with and the pump location, etc.

    What you show will work, although may add more restriction than you would have to with some other, yet unrealized, solution.

    EDIT: I agree, if you have to go with all the turns, increasing everything above ground to 2" pipe will certainly help.

    So Take the 1.5" PVC to a 2" Union. Then Take the 90 off the Union to the Left and Right..
    Extend the Piece off the First 90 Up High Enough so I can just use (2) 90's and tie in the Jandy then.

    Re: Help - Plumbing Question and Jandy Valve

    Hmm ... from that pic, sure looks like it should fit between the 2 pipes ... oh well.

    Why are you looking to put a union on the vertical pipes? I can not think of why that would be useful. I would just put one in front of the pump.

    I would maybe even cut below the couplers in your last picture and then immediately increase to 2" pipe. and then only reduce right at the pump if required.

    Note that you can use a 2" pipe and a 2" coupler to attach to the Jandy valve ... hmm actually you could come up one of the 2" pipes and use a 2" 90 to turn toward the other pipe ... slip the Jandy directly into the 90. Then for the other pipe you can use a 90 to turn and then a short piece of 2" pipe and a 2" coupler to attach to the other side of the Jandy. You may have to shift the pump a little to line up, but that would be very few turns.

    Looks like your valve will go between the two vertical pipes. Just use a street 90. Slip fit inside the valve and outside the verticals.

    I tried, Trust me I tried, Once the 90 is on, its sticks to far out.

    Question. I threw away the idea of the Union there, to just use the one on the Pump.
    So now I was thinking of installing 2 - Two Port Jandy Valves on each line to have a way for Winter Shut Off.

    It's more fittings to mess with but you could use two 45's back to back and that will increase the center to center distance between the verticals. Do that on both verticals so it does not change the center on your horizontal run.

    I had the same issue and used a couple 45s to give me more room.

    In the picture you can see where I needed top do this on two runs. [attachment=0:3fht57uf]uploadfromtaptalk1367784371627.jpg[/attachment:3fht57uf][attachment=0:3fht57uf]uploadfromtaptalk1367784371627.jpg[/attachment:3fht57uf]

    Not sure why you decided to use 3 Jandy valves though

    Wanted a way to adjust the incoming flows. I sometimes when doing a vacuum to waste close off the flow to the one port, otherwise it sticks to the bottom of the plaster, or collapses the hose. But also for extra protection in case the main valve fails in the winter. I get paranoid. I would have more if you all didn't stop me.
