    Also a tip! If you find grit in your jandy valves, loosen them so you can move the handle past the stops and spin them 360° and the grit will be displaced.

    Some closure on this. Had Red Rhino out and they found my leak on the main drain line right below the deck surface. I have a pavers on dirt so this explains the small pebbles and the back flowing of water...and the draining down. I'm having the pool remodel company fix the plumbing and the...

    It’s pool finish. My valves are below waterline so a lot flows out when I take the valve apart.

    I'm going to go clean it out right now and take some pics....I believe it's pool finish (tiny pebble sheen pebbles). It was redone last year.

    Jandy NeverLube Valve

    I think I know why I'm getting grit on these valves. When the pump is shut off, water from the straining basket flows backwards through the valves and I'm thinking it's getting caught on the partially opened valves and closed valves...when the valves are reopened, the grit is resting on the...

    Are you saying find the RPM that the skimmer pulls and holds dirt down and never go below that RPM? Back to original topic for a sec - how am I getting grit in the skimmer valve? This should be sinking to the bottom. Does this mean I have a leak? I'm getting some bubbles when the pump is...

    Funny - I was just in the process of modifying this. I’m now trying 6-8am 3000rpm, 8am-sunset 1500rpm, sunset for 2 hours 2500 with spillover, 10-midnight 1500rpm.

    Yes, I have a zodiac Z4. I can run with or without spillover, why do you ask?

    Thanks! I'll get some ordered. My other battle is getting a good skim on my new VS pump, finding that right RPM that gets it done.

    Hello all - love this forum - you guys are awesome! Just installed Jandy valves on my vacuum side about a month ago. I keep finding that they're getting full of grit when you turn them. I've opened them up once before and cleaned them out and they're starting to show some wear on the seals...

    I set AUX3 to cleaner and then it allowed me to setup a speed for that mode. Winning!!

    Zodiac Z4 and Intelliflo VS

    Thank you AJW!!! That did it! I also setup my solar for 3450rpm and added it to AUX3 so I can run at full pump if needed. Speed1-8 didn’t seem to do it. I actually don’t have solar heat. Now I just need to play around with it to see what combo affects pump speed. Like spillover is 2000rpm...

    Hey guys, thanks for the help. My spillover is controller but JVA. I can set this up with a schedule but cannot find a way to manually change to spillover without manually switching my return JVA. Example, often times I like to run the spillover with pool heat so we get a lot of spa heat with...
