I have a pool/spa combination and have two JVA 2440 actuators on compool valves. I noticed they were leaking from underneath, where the cam actually sits onto the valve. I changes the gaskets in the compool valves. But they were fine to begin with with.
I took off the JVA 2440 and opened the top, everything looked fine. Dry, no rust, dust etc. Look brand new even though they are 10 years old. I opened the bottom layer where the gears are and they appeared fine. Teeth sharp, etc. Nothing looked broken. I gave it a good lube, as it appeared it had been when installed and closed everything up.
The leak has slowed, but still a few drops. Should I just replace the actuators?
I appreciate all your help!
