How does an actuator work on a valve?
Hydraulic actuators convert fluid pressure into motion. Similar to pneumatic actuators, they are used on linear or quarter-turn valves. Fluid pressure acting on a piston provides linear thrust for gate or globe valves. A quarter-turn actuator produces torque to provide rotary motion to operate a quarter-turn valve.
How do I know if my Jandy valve is open?
Jandy 2-Way Valves On a two port Jandy valve, the valve has two closed positions and one open position. On the left, the valve is closed because the diverter is blocking the flow of water through the port. In the center, the diverter is blocking nothing, so the valve is open and water can flow through it.
Should skimmer valve be open or closed?

Which valve is main drain in pool?
How to Switch From a Skimmer to a Main Drain A diverter valve switches pool suction from the skimmer to the main drain. Swimming pool circulation pumps draw water from the pool utilizing suction plumbed to the skimmer inlets at water level and the main drain at the pool’s bottom.
How pool main drain works?
A pool’s so-called main drain is not actually a drain; that is, it is not used to drain the pool. Instead, it is an outlet, housing a pipe that runs to the pump, which sucks water through a skimmer, then through a filter, then through a heater (if you have one), and then back to the pool via multiple inlets.
Should I Use main drain or skimmers?
Skimmer Vs. Drain. If the pool receives a lot of leaves and other debris, more suction may be required at the skimmer than the main drain to adequately strain debris floating on the surface. Conversely, if dirt on the bottom of the pool is the principal contaminant, more suction is required at the main drain.
How do you know if your pool is leaking main?
So, if you see that you pressure quickly drops to 2 psi, it’s likely that there’s a leak in the main drain line somewhere between 4′ – 5′ under the water level of the pool. If there is a leak in the section of the line at or above the water level of the pool, you’ll see a quick drop to 0 psi.
Where do pools usually leak?
Look closely at the tile line and look real closely inside of the skimmer(s). The most common leak we fix is a separation between the plastic skimmer and the concrete pool. This is easily fixed with some pool putty.
Are pool main drains necessary?
Main drains are not required in an inground swimming pool, however, they are strongly recommended and can be extremely useful in some circumstances. The advantages of main drains are to give you the ability to drain the water from your pool without the use of a sump pump. This is useful when replacing your pool liner.
Where does water go when pool leaks?
The pressurized plumbing system pumps water back to the pool after it has passed through the filter. The filtered water returns to the pool through the jet (or return) inlets. The plumbing that returns the water from the filter to the pool is often referred to as return plumbing.
How often should you have to add water to your pool?
Normally pools see ¼ – ½ inch loss of water per day due to evaporation. This is roughly 2 – 4 inches per week. For a normal sized pool you will loose 25,000 to 50,000 gallons of water per year due to evaporation. This means I was putting a hose in the pool every 7-10 days to fill the pool.
Is a pool leak covered by homeowners insurance?
If your home sustains water damage from a leak you could reasonably have been aware of, you might not be covered. This includes leaking shower floors or bases in your bathroom, and leaking swimming pools or underground tanks.
Why does my inground pool keep losing water?
No matter which season you are in, your pool can lose inches of water a week. Natural causes such as wind, heat and humidity can contribute to pool water loss. This is a big deal, because if your water level gets too low it may cause your pool pump to suck air and run dry, which can damage it.
How high should the water level be in a swimming pool?
The level at which pool skimmers function properly is between one third and about half way up the opening of the pool skimmer. If the water level is too high the debris floating next to the opening may pass by without being pulled into the skimmer.
Can I shock my pool 2 days in a row?
Will the children swim again? Here’s the deal. It’s pretty tough to over-shock your pool; shocking your pool two days in a row with the proper dosage for your pool volume shouldn’t be a problem – and in fact, is sometimes even needed to rid your pool of algae and other contaminants.
