My Jandy 3 way valve leaks - is it most likely the O ring inside? My never lube valve has a #20 imprinted on the top edge - can you tell me which size it is?Watched the video to replace the guts of the valve - what is the item number for the replacement parts? Lastly my aqua pure chlorinator malfunctioned. The multi-prong plug literally melted away. Do you know what caused this. Can I replace the parts and wires myself or is it a difficult fix? Thank you.
Hi, Sam. You can use the Jandy Tune Up Kit (GOKIT72) to resolve the issue of the leaking valve. As for the AquaPure system, if the PCB send the incorrect voltage through the cable it can cause the cable to melt. The cable can be easily replaced if the prongs on the cell is bad then you will have to replace the entire cell.
Can these valves (4715) be reconfigured so that the "common" port is one of the sides of the tee rather than the bottom of the tee?
Dan, Yes it can. You'll have to remove the handle and adjust the diverter.
I have this valve installed at my pump. I have a lot of air coming out of the pool jets and it doesn't stop. If I rotate the valve to vacuum and back to skimmer, it clears the air immediately. Do you have any suggestions?
I would recommend checking the gaskets/o-rings on the valve and pump housing. They may be letting air into the system.
Why do the Jandy valves list ID and OD for each valve?
Each Jandy valve is designed to connect to two different size pipes. For example on a valve shown with ID 1 1/2" and OD 2", a 1 1/2" pipe can be glued inside the port or a 2" pipe can be glued on the outside of the port.
I just bought a house with a pool. i'v never had a pool so my question is when the pump comes on automaticaly (it has a timer)what position is the jandy valve supposed to be turned to the main drain or skimmer?
You can turn the valve so that all the suction is going to the drain at the bottom of the pool, this will suck any dirt or debris on the bottom of the pool through the drain and clean through the filter. If you turn the valve so the suction is going to the skimmer then you will be pulling any leaves or debris off the surface of the pool. You can also set the valve in a half way position so you are pulling from both the skimmer and main drain. I hope this helps.
(5 out of 5 stars) excellent multipostion valve

Pros: MULTISIZED PORTS AND EASY DISASSEMBLY
Cons: FINDING THE PROPER GLUE FOR A PVC/CPVC JOINT
THE VALVES ARE EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED AND THE MOVEMENT IS SMOOTH. THEY ARE EASILY DISASSEMBLED FOR INSTALLATION OR REPAIR.
(5 out of 5 stars) Solid as a rock

Pros: heavy duty, great quality
These valves are really heavy duty. Was very impressed with quality. The handles are probably not as heavy duty as the rest of the unit, but still acceptable. I'm just a pool-owner, so I don't work with these all the time - The one thing I struggled with was confirming that these valves actually do take either 1&1/2 or 2-inch pipe. (1&1/2 goes inside and 2-inch goes outside). They should make that clearer. I didn't want to buy them until I was sure how they worked.
