Hayward Pump Jandy Valve

May 20, 2020
Welcome to the forum!
If you want the two suction lines coming from the ground to be fully open, then the OFF paddle on the valve handle should be pointing away from the pump.
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.
That is my question. the Off paddle on the valve only rotates as shown in the picture below (the green line). I am not able to point it away from the pump.

That's strange, but an easy fix. I think you can unscrew that middle portion enough that the whole mechanism will go over the stops that are to either side. Otherwise, just unscrew all of those screws around the top. Pull out the guts and rotate them around. Then, screw it back together. The "OFF" paddle belongs on the other side.

Yeah, I would check and see if he handle got put on in the wrong orientation, if that it isn't iti unscrew the whole thing and see if the valve stops are off. just make sure you don't strip the screws when you put it back together.
