    You can use whatever check valve you like.

    I can not really tell what is going on in that picture though.

    I reconnected the drain and disconnected the ruined solar heating, I am still getting air, though not much. I recently discovered an inground "ortega"valve between the pool and the pump station. When I opened it up I noticed several obviously broken pieces, inside of the valve. My question is this, can I replace the valve with a new jandy check valve, instead of trying to track down the guts for the old one?

    What line was the ortega on? There is rarely a need for any check valves if you do not have solar. And I certainly would not put it underground.

    Please add your pool details to your signature as described HERE as it will help us help you.

    It was difficult to tell what was going on standing in front of it!! The site wouldn't let me attach both the before & after pics on the post for some reason. The next pic is the re-plumb
