    Pentair Heater Pressure Relief Valve

    Hello all. Thanks for everyone’s help. Got a new check valve installed thanks to y’all’s expertise. Good news is the plumbing held after the install and elsewhere since the freeze in TX. Bad news is I saw a leak while testing and realized this bad boy corroded away and finally snapped...

    Cracked Jandy Check Valve

    Got it. Seems like there’s a chance I could cut on the left side of the broken valve flush and keep the elbow. Straight piece next then 2nd elbow then check valve vertical. seems like having the check valve vertical is a good idea...agree?

    Cracked Jandy Check Valve

    Cracked Jandy Check Valve

    Hello all. Thank you guys for the storm advice. I’m sure there may be more damage to find once under pressure but the main visual damage i see here is this cracked valve. Hoping I might be able to DIY but the proximity to the next valve has me concerned. Would love a recommendation about...

    Hard Freeze with Power Failure Central TX

    Hello all...first time poster long time reader. Here in Austin the polar vortex got us...overnight single digits and sub zero winds...about 8” of snow. Pump was running until about 1230am when the power went out. About 8 hours later and no power. I’ve turned off the breaker in case the power...
