I have an aqualogic system. Pool and Spa Std. Both Valve actuators for the spa wont turn. Doesn't matter which position the switches are in. Tested microswitches inside. They are OK. Replaced actuator. Same effect. Need to know proper testing procedure for the main board. No useful info from Hayward. I'm not "AUTHORIZED", but I am capable. Please provide needed info.

A     Answered on 3/8/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, JS. The only way you can test the board is to check to see if the actuator is getting the correct amount of volts needed to power it. To check power to the actuator, measure AC volts between the black (common) and each switch leg (red then white). If there is no AC volts on either leg, check the 24VAC power source.

I have a Hayward saltwater controller and this GVA-24. My understanding is as long as the solar panels are reading > the solar temp, it will heat the water to the solar temp. Regarding the manual toggle switch. I've read it's designed as "Auto 1, off, Auto 2". Currently though it seems to be functioning as "Opens Valve, Off, Closes Valve". Am I stuck in manual mode? Any tips on how to return it to an automatic mode, where the controller auto informs actuator to open/close? Thank you!

Hi, Jack. The Actuator will have to be in the Auto position in order to be controlled by the controller.

Can i control the voltage output to this so that i can control the flow

A     Answered on 10/25/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Tyler. You can not control the voltage to the actuator. You can set the actuator to control the valve opening which will regulate the water flow. You can view instructions in the Goldline GVA24 Install Manual

I have a Hayward Valve Actuator model #GVA-4. Is this interchangeable with the Model #GVA24?

A     Answered on 6/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Donald. This GVA24 valve actuator is interchangeable if you're using a Hayward controller.

part of the handle on one valve and the thumb screw on another have broken. May I buy replacements parts from you? They are GVA-24 valves with electric actuators.T

A     Answered on 4/5/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mike. The parts that you need are not specific to the actuator but the valve. If you con provide us with the valve model we can locate the part that you need.

I replaced my broken GVA-24. The new actuator works fine using the toggle switch. When my solar kicks on the valve moves counter clockwise 180 degrees which is good. When it turns off nothing happens. The actuator does not turn clockwise 180 degrees back to turn the flow of water off to the solar panels. I also have a brand new GL-235 controller and temp sensors. I have checked the temp sensors and they check out fine. Thanks for your help.

Hello Brian, you might want to contact Goldline to run a diagnostic 888-921-7665.

Hello, attached is the Installation Manual for model GVA-24

i have a gl-235 actuator. is there anyway air could get thur the actuator and cause air bubbles to come out of the pool there a gasket that has to be replaced behind the housing from the actuator going into the pvc.

A     Answered on 7/10/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi RC, If you're getting bubbles back into the pool it's entering from the suction side of your system. You can follow the steps in our How To: Identify and Correct Air Leaks guide for troubleshooting instructions.

Are the replacement gearsets available for the Goldline Valve actuator? The model # is off, but it's controlled by a goldline 235 on a 3-way valve.

A     Answered on 5/3/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Mike, Replacement gears are not available for this unit, you will have to replace the complete actuator.

Aqualogic value actuator GVA24 / what outside remoto by the spa ) PN 520094 will it work with the GVA24

A     Answered on 2/10/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Hello, Dean. The Valve Actuators are interchangeable to other Manufacturers Valves, for systems using  24VAC Control Systems this actuator should work. It is designed for the Aqua Logic but can be used in place of any 24-volt actuator. Pentair offers a CVA24T 3 Port Valve Actuator, part number 263045 if you would prefer to keep your product line the same.

?     Asked on 7/5/2015 by ted waters

what position should the switch be in for normal operation

A     Answered on 7/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Ted, The Aqua Logic Valve Actuator toggle switch would be positioned at "ON1" for  a 2-Way Valve and at "ON2" for a 3-Way Valve.

?     Asked on 7/5/2015 by ted waters

what is the purpose of the togle switch on the back of the unit

A     Answered on 7/5/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ted, the toggle switch allows you to manually activate the valve, so when you flip the switch the actuator activates and starts rotating the valve. Normally you would use this switch when you need to activate the valve manually not through a controller.

How is it possible that this valve actuator will fit on any 2 or 3 way valve?

A     Answered on 9/15/2008 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The most common valves in the industry are Jandy, Compool, Pentair,Hayward, and Intermatic.  These mfg'rs make up 99% of the valves on the market.  All of these mfg'rs use the same bolt pattern on their valves.  Since they use a common bolt pattern, the valve accuators are interchangeable.  Click here to view all our  valve actuators
