    Jandy Valves?

    Everyone I've talked to refers to the valves at the equipment pad as Jandy Valves. Even when the rest of the equipment is Pentair, they still use that term.

    Are Jandy brand valves better than other valves, or are they the "Kleenex" of valves, where the name is used no matter what the brand is?

    Re: Jandy Valves?

    Many years ago Jandy invented a new kind of valve that was way better than all other valves for swimming pool use. Not so long ago the patent expired and now all the major companies make valves in that style. Some people call all valves in the Jandy style "Jandy valves", quite a bit like the Kleenex situation.

    Yup. I found a better deal on the Pentair version so that is what I used to redo my pad.
