    Goldline Valve Acutator Installation GVA-24

    I am trying to configure the valve and running into a lot of issues.

    Here is what I am trying to do. The majority of the time I want the filter to take in water from the skimmer only. For about an hour a day I want the filter to take water from the skimmer and vacuum at about 50% each.

    I have tried multiple configurations but cannot figure it out.

    Here are my questions:

    Is this possible?
    Over which pipe should I place the valve?
    what position should the small slot be in? 12 o'clock?
    What position should the cams be in?
    Should I be using on 1 or on 2?

    Sometimes the valve spins without stopping and I only want it to turn 90 degrees. Sometimes it turn 270 degrees!

    Please help!

    I just got an Aqua Plus system and hooked it up to two valve actuators for my pool/spa. I don't think it's possible to do what you want. I think you need to decide which way you want the valve to operate:
    1. A or B
    2. A or (1/2 A AND 1/2 B)

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Can you give us a pic of your system's valve configuration?

    How the lines come in and the valve is positioned make a difference.

    The toggle switch positions simply set which of the 2 end points are the starting and ending point when it actuates.

    The Goldline models are IMO the easiest to recam 8)

    Best I can say is to recam the unit to be closed on the vac line valve as 'normal' operation and then, have it stop 1/2 way between the two ports the other 2 hours

    Your question is slightly vague and my answer is even more so without the plumbing lay out :P

    Please let us help you by giving us a little more info on the set up
