Question about Jandy Water Feature 18" Sheer Descent Extended Lip, Gray

1 Answer

Our waterfall stopped flowing - we called a pool service and they informed us the valve has a spring inside it and it requires replacement. We're trying to do the best we can and hope that it's not too complicated both in labor and financial.

Pentair Intelliflo Pump Alarms and Continual re-Priming


Many pool owners seem to experience the situation with the Intelliflo Variable Flo (model numbers have changed over the past 3 years) pump alarming and re-priming continually and then stopping. I had this problem for nearly two years and spoke to the actual pump designer. We ultimately solved it as there was a spring valve in the heat pump I have. Any type of spring valve (or similar item) is a problem for the intelliflo as the pump is tooooo intelligent. When the spring opens and closes with water flow (or depending on what it was designed to do) it makes the pump think that there is a blockage and it reacts by shutting off and creating an alarm.

The solution is to replace the spring valves (or item that is varying the flow in the system) in your pool circuit. I was able to create a work around that used a manual valve just before the spring valve to reduce the flow so that the spring would not move and thus impact the pump. Basically you need to be ascertain if there are any parts in your pool flow that alter the water flow and thus pressure at any time (ie such as a spring valve) as the intelligence of the pump will take that to be an irregularity and shutdown. This can be time consuming and I hope this helps.

Note: you can test the pump to confirm that it is the intelligence that is causing the fault by putting the pump into FULL manual mode - consult the manual as merely pushing the manual switch does NOT disable the fault protection and system intelligence.

DREAM MAKER SPA WATERFALL VALVE


The threaded cap the holds the waterfall valve in place is most likely cracked so you will just need a new valve. Send me a picture of it and I can see if I can locate one for you.

Spa waterfall isn't flowing


If you turn the valve to operate the waterfall feature on your spa and no water is coming out of it, my best guess would be the valve is broken and not turning to allow the water to go to the waterfall.
Pull the top of the valve off and look inside for a broken part.

It sounds like the main gas valve is sticking open. I suggest you call a pro to repair this unless you are familiar with how to do it. Your life is worth more than a gas valve and a service call will cost you.

When the spa and the waterfall running, the waterfall will **** out the water from the spa to the pool. what is wrong with this?


The valve(s) controlling water flow to all the features are not set correctly. You will need to increase the amount going back to the spa to keep it from draining. Depending on the valves in use they are not overly difficult to change the diverter settings. If you need help with that please comment to this post and include the valve brand and model number.

I am using an AO Smith motor on a Hayward pump to run my pond. It is about 4 years old now. Most recently, in the hot weather (90+F in the Northeast) the pump just shut off as I was watching the...


pump is protected with a thermo switch made inside the motor to shut it off if it gets to hot check for oil ports at the bearings if it dose not have them maybe try adding a ball valve and turning down the flow some to create slower flow and higher pressure
