    3 way Jandy as waste vavle

    I have spent about 3 hours looking through google posts/searches and cant find exactly what I am trying to do, so here it goes..

    I want to use a 3 way jandy port and have 1 side be used as waste. It would be after the pump but before the filter. I would have that port closed 99.9% of the time unless I needed to winterize or get water out of the pool.. Can I do this, will the Vavle leak if I do not have a pipe connected to it? I plan on connecting a 50 foot waste hose but that is it.

    Thanks

    That will work just fine.

    The one change I would recommend is to use enough rigid PVC to move the water away from the equipment pad, so that if the flexible hose comes off, or otherwise fails, you won't be spraying huge amounts of water on the equipment.

    A tee and a gate valve are a lot cheaper than a Jandy three-way. You don't really need to block off the filter to have a waste line - there's very little restriction in an open line compared to the filter. Probably eighty percent of the flow would head on out the waste line.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
