Part # 2875
Jandy sets the benchmark for valves. For over 30 years Jandy valves have become synonymous with innovation, durability and quality. All Jandy valves pass 18 different quality control checks before leaving the factory.
Our workhorse diverter valve is as tough as the NeverLube, and requires no disassembly for lubrication. It comes with a 1-year warranty and a 20-year track record of proven reliability.

I am going to use this valve to replace the parts inside my existing valve (diverter, gaskets). My grease cap insert also broke off my current valve...can I remove the grease cap insert from this new one and screw it into my existing valve? I wouldn't think there would be any issues but checking to be sure.
If you have a part number off of your current valve I can confirm that the grease cap will fit on your current valve.
I have elbows that say 2 on them that connect over the valve. What size valve do I need to order?
If your elbows fit 2" piping, you will want to buy the diverter valve that is 1 1/2" inside and 2" outside. The 2" elbow will then fit over the outside of the valve port. For lower maintanance you might consider buying the Neverlube version of this valve. They have a Teflon paddle and never have to be lubricated.
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.
On Jandy Valve 2875, what is the function of the black knob?
The black knob on the valve should be filled with marine grease. The knob can be turned to force grease into the valve. This lubricates the valve and helps the handle turn.
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.

Valve is just as in any Pool Supply Store only less expensive...ships and arrives in just three days...and if you are doing an install why not wait and do it right and cheaper...this valve like all Jandy valves can be taken apart to change the configuration of open/close easily...
(5 out of 5 stars) Great 3 Way Valve at a good price

Pros: Less expensive than the never lube version and it can be easily lubed
This valve worked great for me and I see no reason to spend more $ to get the never lube version. Other than the grease port, I believe the valves are identical.
