I have a Jandy JVA2440 valve on the suction side of my pump that needs to be rebuild (I think). it doesn't seem to seal in the closed position and allows air into the system. I sometimes lose the pump's prime. What parts do I need to replace? Just the rubber gaskets or more? Is there a re-build kit for this?
It really will depend on the model of the valve itself which your actuator is mounted to. Most commonly it's a Jandy diverter valve or Pentair. If you click here you will see the parts list with the seals listed that you may want to replace for the Jandy. Then click here to view the Pentair version.
I am trying to replace my old JVA2440 valve actuator. Your website says it is replaced by the newer JVA2444 and the pictures show JVA2444 marked on the valve. But your FAQ says the valve is a 4424. What is 4424? Is that another replacement model for the JVA2440? If I order a JVA2444 will I get a 2444 or a 4424 and what is the difference? This is very confusing.
Hi, Gary Davis. The 4424 is the current model number however, the valve will have JVA2444 on the valve. They are all the same just with different identification numbers. There is no difference between the numbers.
If the 4424 is the replacement to the JVA2440 why does my JVA2440 have a toggle switch on it? I do not see a toggle switch on the new ones. Can you tell me why?
Hi, Jonathan. The JVA4424 Actuator does have a toggle switch. It is located on the bottom or the underside of the actuator.
Is this Jandy auto valve 2444, the same as the 2440 model?
Joe, The 4424 actuator used to be labeled "JVA2440" Jandy has made internal improvements and it is now labeled "JVA2444" but it is still the same product.
I have a non working Jandy Valve Actuator - JVA 2440 - Maximum Torque.
Does your JVA Valve Actuator a compatable replacement for my old one?
Phillip, Yes, this will replace the older 2440 actuator,
Have 20 year old valves that work great, just leak a bit. Is there a gasket/o ring kit I can purchase for a rebuild? They are JVA 179532 and JVA 179532 valves.
I need my jandy actuator to move and stop in 90 degree increments. If I have a 3 port valve with an actuator and the B port is the inlet and the A and C ports are outlets (standard position) I need the following to happen:
At 0 degrees B is off or dead headed.
At 90 degrees B is connected to C; A is off.
At 180 degrees A, B and C are all connected.
At 270 degrees B is connected to A; C is off.
The valve will do this but can the actuator do this?
Hello Karl- Looking in the owner's manual for this actuator it appears you would be able to have that functionality. Here is a link to the manual for you to double check, there is a chart on page 8. I believe you will need Mounting III: http://images.inyopools.com/cloud/documents/jandy-valves-actuators.pdf
My valve is in the off position for the solar power and I cannot get it to turn to the on position?
The Jandy Valve could have an internal issue or the Actuator may need to be replaced, if you have automation. You may click here to view the Jandy Standard & Never Lube Valve Parts diagram. I suggest reviewing our How To Repair a Diverter Valve and How To Replace an Actuator Valve guides.
I need to replace a jandy valve actuator, model # jva 2440. Which of your replacement actuators is compatable.
I have a Jandy valve actuator that needs to be replaced. I got it in 2012. On its top its says CVA-24 Valve Acuator; Patent no.: 4547007; Voltage: 24VAC 50/60Mz (or maybe 60/60Mz); Current: 0.65 AMP. What Valve actuator should I buy to replace it? Thanks. Ben
My jandy 2440 valve has develop a leak below the activation arm. Is there a replacement gasket available? It operates fine other than the leakage
How is it possible that this valve actuator will fit on any 2 or 3 way valve?
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
(4 out of 5 stars) Quality Product
Reviewed By: Ross S. from Fairfield, CT ()
Pros: Sturdy, well built, reliable
Cons: Hard to custom configure.
Like all other Jandy products, the JVA 2444 is a sturdy unit built to last. Configuring the cams for anything other than a standard pool / spa selection is not as straightforward as it could be. The cams are not labeled clearly and setting them up involve bit of trial and error. Jandy could (should) simplify this.
(4 out of 5 stars) Adjustable to any position
Reviewed By: Pbod from Lewisville, TX ()
Pros: Adjustable to any position
Cons: Manual operation
I needed an actuator that would partially open a Jandy valve by just 5 clicks. It does exactly what I needed. Manual operation of the actuator depends on the actuator shaft's ability to slide down the valve's shaft. The shafts like to stick together making them hard to engage and disengage.
(4 out of 5 stars) Easy-to-install servo valve
Reviewed By: Rich D. from Doraville, GA ()
Pros: good documentation, easy to install
Cons: stems don't pop back easily after manual
Actuators are easy to install-they just replace the manual handle. I have had some problems with the stem not popping back up (you push it down for manual actuation of the valve).
