    Low water flow to one cycle of infloor cleaning system

    I think you may need to rebuild the quickclean actuator to get a better seal between the active circuit and the others. It cost me about $125 in parts to do mine last year and really improved flow from the active heads. It is a pretty simple project. The test would be to hold a hand or foot...
