Thread: All my automatic vales have stopped working?!?!

    All my automatic vales have stopped working?!?!

    Hello pool brains!!

    It appears all my valves have stopped working at the same time. The pump is still working, but I can't get valves to turn as I cycle them on or off like normal. At first, I thought it was just one valve not working, but I can't get any of them to move.

    Any direction would be great. Thank you!

    Jets in the spa that don't work worth a ****, currently experiencing pressure issues in the pool and at work:)

    I'm speculating, but it sure sounds like a panel issue. Seems very odd for all to fail at once.

    I agree. Is there a fuse in the panel that controls the valves?
    Thanks for the post!

    I'm sorry I don't know, but I would look into it and start first with the manual.

    You also do not mention what automation system you have anywhere, so that makes it harder to help. The panel is still getting power and just the valves have stopped? Do the valves move if you throw the switch on the actuator themselves? Check that to see if the actuators are getting power.
