Adjusting suction valves

In this video, we will cover how to adjust the suction side valves

The suction side valves will be the primary valves you will need to adjust. These valves are used to turn the skimmers and main drain off and on independent from each other. This gives you the ability to vacuum manually or turn the skimmers off if the water is low.


  • Use the off tab on the valve as a reference, where the off tab is pointing that pipe is off.
  • There are stopper pins on the valves, when needed loosen the screw at the top of the valve, lift up on the handle, and you will be able to turn it freely.
