    Paramount 6 module issue / questions

    I have in ground paramount 6 module.

    When I start the pump all heads pop up, but only 3 out of five get pressure.

    On the valve pressure gauage does not move (may be bad).

    When I shut off pump all heads go down so there is some movement.


    I took out the value & washed it couple of times, also tried moving plastic circles they are free. Its about 6 year old.

    DO I need to replace or any fixes available ?

    Thanks

    Can you take a picture of the underside? The plastic circles are not meant to be turned. The short side of the wings should be pointed to the center. How about the seals around the valves themselves? Are they worn out to the point they are no longer there? I'm told by the manufacturer that they will really only last 4-5 years with a SWG. I had to replace both of mine last year, 3 + 1 and the 6 point valves.

    If you do replace them, get them online. Much cheaper on the net.

    The white seals around valve at bottom is coming off, its there but worn off. Yes those bottom circles do not turn they just block/allow the water flow to diff. channels.

    I am seeing the price around $169 online (good !)

    Yes, they are a bit different but they work well. If you do spin the fins, make sure you only spin them one way or the other. The white seals were my problem too. You will notice a big improvement. That is a good price for the valve you found online.
