    Zodiac caretaker99 parts?

    They ara all Hayward GVA24 actuators. I am not sure of the valve brand there. It’s been there since before I owned it. I always use pentair valves. Yes it’s cracked at the front right screw that also holds down the actuator. It’s like a hairline crack but it started squirting out.

    Zodiac caretaker99 parts?

    I guess old age. I don’t know for sure. Maybe due to years of strong UV exposure. It cracked where one of the screws goes into the body. No one touched it and it cracked out of nowhere. It’s original from when the pool was built about 10 or so years ago. I tried using plastic jbweld and...

    Zodiac caretaker99 parts?

    Here is a wider picture This is the return to pool plumbing portion, which also includes a 3 way valve (in the front) that bypasses the caretakerto a water feature. This 3 way valve is what cracked and needs to be replaced. The way it was plumbed there is no room for repairs. I need to replace...

    Zodiac caretaker99 parts?

    Thanks. That makes sense. There is no winterizing where I live. And for 6 years I’ve owned the pool. I’ve never once used this. I’ll probably just get rid of it.

    My signature does have everything I know of. it’s part6 from the manual. And it says not sold separately. Still not sure what it’s used for to begin with.

    Zodiac caretaker99 parts?

    I’ll take a picture tomorrow. I am not the original owner. It is from the original installation that was done about 10 years ago when the pool was built I was not the owner then. I am now :)

    Hayward ProLogic Wireless automation?

    How do you connect direct without using the AquaConnect app through a smartphone? is that even possible? I have no problem with my wifi.

    Hayward ProLogic Wireless automation?

    Not for me. Response time is much quicker using the standard remote compared to the aqua connect. The aquaconnect sometimes takes several tries to even register the commands.

    Hayward ProLogic Wireless automation?

    You can get an aql2-base-rf and a aql2-pod2. Or an aql2-base-rf and a aquaconnetc home connect to control it from your smart phone. This is convenient to use on a smart phone but very slow and not even as close to the speed of a aql2-pod2 remote. Either way you would need the RF base antenna.

    Check valves

    I decided to go with the pentair CPVC check valves with a flapper. I also had a leak from one of my other jandy type check valves and needed to replace the flapper in both of them. One flapper fell off and was easily removed and replaced. One flapper fell off and was missing until I found it...

    Check valves

    Yes the flapper valves are serviceable that is true. But at the same time they always need to be serviced (every year or 2). I currently have 2 of the flapper valves at my cleaning system end. I guess now i need to service 4 of them. I suppose this is the correct way of plumbing it, with the...

    Check valves

    I’m redoing some plumbing for my equipment. I’m not sure about which check valves to use. I’m adding a check valve in front of each filter for my pool/spa. Can I use the regular type of in line check valves sold in hardware stores? Or should I use the jandy type of valve with a flapper? Or...

    Can anyone explain this plumbing diagram in detail for me?

    Thanks for the info. So these should I remain manual valves. I suppose the only actuator valve in this entire diagram would be what is labeled as valve 3. I got this diagram from Hayward’s instructions for prologic. My system matches the description of a dual equipment system with one shared...

    Can anyone explain this plumbing diagram in detail for me?

    I am following this plumbing diagram for my dual pool/spa setup with spillover and a shared heater. On a Hayward prologic system. This diagram shows 3 valves. What is the purpose for valves 1 and 2 exactly? Is it a trap on each loop to relief pressure from the heater if needed? Does anyone...

    Hayward prologic pool/spa dual - shared heater - config

    I’m starting to do the plumbing tomorrow. I guess I’ll just plug in each actuator valve into each connection (1-4) and see what it does when I push the buttons. :( Trial and error seems to be my only choice. Unfortunately getting this information is nearly impossible and Hayward’s...

    Hayward prologic pool/spa dual - shared heater - config

    I just replaced my old aqualogic for a prologic. I am having trouble understanding how to do the proper setup for automation of my system utilizing the automatic valves. How would you set it up? I have a pool/spa spillover setup. Dual system, dual pump, dual filter, single heater. I would...

    Spa plumbing connectors

    Thank you! I’m still learning my system. So I suppose the caps will let more air in as I loosen them. Not sure what the purpose of it is since the spa also has a blower... Thanks for the info!

    Carousel rotojet

    I have a fitting for my spa that broke. It’s called a carousel rotojet. Searching for it came up with nada. It’s no longer made and available as far as I can find. Does anyone know what part I can replace it with? Seems whatever I need to fix on my pool it’s something that is no longer made or...
