I am trying to adapt a 3 way Jandy Valve in a grey water discharge system. We want to use a simple push button or toggle switch to to control the position of the Jandy (or equivlent) actuator. Buying a controller at $300 to $400 is simply not an option. It is my understanding that the controller merely powers the wire to the actuator with 24 volts, but I do not know what happens from there. Does the controller use a timer? Is there a switch in the actuator that stops the turning? How exactly does the actuator work? Anybody have ideas how to use a simple switch or push button to control the valve?
