Basic Plumbing
Non-Booster Pump Cleaner Plumbing
Pool & Spa Plumbing
Plumbing for Pool and Spa Combination.
The diagram to the right shows a simplified version of a
standard plumbing setup for a pool and spa that share
the same filter pump, filter, and heater. The Intake and
Return JVAs (Jandy Valve Actuators) turn simultaneously
so when the Spa button is pressed on the AquaLink® RS
Controller, water circulation switches between pool and
spa. Consult the JVA Installation Manual to ensure that the
Jandy Valve Actuators are "in synch" and rotate properly.
Please also note that if you have a pool only or a spa only,
the diagram does not apply, and if your pool and spa have
separate sets of equipment, you should install an
AquaLink ® RS 2/6 model Controller, designed to control
separate equipment sets.
Non-Booster Pump Pressure-Side
Pool Cleaner Plumbing.
The diagram to the right shows standard
plumbing for a non-booster pump pressure-side
pool cleaner (i.e., Ray-Vac, Energy Sweep, etc.) To
control this cleaner, control water circulation to
the cleaner by using a Cleaner JVA (see right).
Plumb a three-port valve between the filter pump
and the filter. Install a 2-port valve to open and
close the cleaner line, and after the valve, install a
Jandy Energy Filter to provide filtration (as the
main filter has been bypassed). Mount a JVA on
the 2-port valve and set the cam(s) (see JVA
Manual) to turn 90º. Please note the installation of
a non-booster pump pool cleaner requires
moving DIP Switch #1 to the ON position.
6
Basic Plumbing
Booster Pump Pool Cleaner Plumbing.
Booster Pump Plumbing
If you are using a Booster Pump Pool cleaner, plumb the
booster pump so its suction side is connected to the
pool return after the heater and as close to the ground
as is practical (see diagram to the right). Please note
that the installation of a booster pump pool cleaner
requires moving DIP Switch #1 to the ON position.
Solar System Plumbing.
If a solar system is part of the equipment, plumb the solar
feed and return lines between the main filter and the
heater (see diagram to the right). Please be sure to make
provision for solar drain down. Use a Jandy Non-Positive
Seal Valve to provide drain down. Plumb in a solar
booster pump if needed.
If a solar booster pump is installed, follow the
wiring diagram on page 34 for more information.
7
Solar System Plumbing
NOTE: A Jandy (10K) Solar Sensor will be needed for
solar system control. The sensor should be located near
the solar panels and connected to the Power Center by
18 AWG wire.
Power Center Connection - High Voltage
Mount Power Center.
All electrical equipment, except for the Four Function Switch, must be five feet or more from pool /spa and comply with all
national, state and local codes. If using a Jandy Power Center without built-in breaker compartment, install electrical supply
panel with separate breakers for each load. Make sure that motors on equipment have built-in thermal protection. Use the
grounding terminal, provided within the Power Center, for grounding. Bond all equipment, including the Power Center, to
earth ground. (Install to provide drainage for all electrical components.) Mount no less than 5 feet from pool/spa and at least
5 feet off the ground. In areas where lightning strikes are common, install an external surge suppression device.
Run Conduit/Wire from Supply Panel.
Depending on the amount of equipment you want to control, run ¾" or larger conduit from the power supply panel to the
lower side of the Power Center. If you are using the Power Center with built-in breaker compartment, wire power to the
appropriate breakers. Pull in appropriate wire for equipment. Each piece of equipment requires its own high voltage relay.
Connect 120 volts to the power supply terminals. Connect equipment ground(s).
Wire Relay (install additional relays if needed).
For each piece of 240 volt equipment to be controlled, wire line power to the two line terminals of a Relay and wire
equipment to the two load terminals. For each piece of 120 volt equipment, wire power to a line terminal and the equipment
to a load terminal. Order and install optional relay modules if additional equipment is to be installed. Wire all relays and feed
the relay plugs through the holes into low voltage compartment. Plug in relay coils using the wiring diagram on page 34 as
a guide.
Special Relays.
If you have a two-speed pump, you must order and install a two-speed relay. If you wish to install light dimming, you must
order and install a light dimming relay.

Four Function Spa Side Remote Provisions
The Four Function Spa Side Remote is a double insulated, submersible device which is ETL listed (to UL
Standard 1563) for installation at the water’s edge. It is typically installed at the tile-line of the spa wall, or in
the deck within arm’s reach of the spa. It can be used with a gunite spa, acrylic spa, or hot-tub.
When installing the Four Function Remote, it is important to make provisions for this hard-wired remote
before the pool/spa construction is complete by running electrical conduit from the desired remote
location to the future Power Center location. Do not install the Four Function Remote until construction of spa
and deck is complete.
1. Install a 6" piece of 1½” or 1" schedule 40 PVC pipe in the pool/spa wall so that the Four Function Remote
will not be constantly submerged. A 1½” to 1" adapter is included for use if 1½” PVC pipe is being used. This
pipe will house the remote installed vertically in the wall of the pool or spa. Carefully trim the end of the pipe
flush with the wall after all tile work is completed. There must be least 2" of clearance from coping stones or
other raised objects to the schedule 40 pipe.
2. Install a ½” or ¾” reducer to the bottom of the 6" piece of pipe and run a ½” or ¾” electrical conduit
underground from the reducer to the future AquaLink ® RS Power Center location see page 10 of AquaLink ® RS
Installation Manual for further details on Power Center). Use sweep elbows (do not use 90° elbows) for turns
so that you can easily pull the remote cable later.
3. Use a snake (or similar tool) to pull the Four Function Remote cable through the conduit to the Power
Center.
4. At the Power Center, feed the remote cable into the low voltage compartment (left-hand side). Strip the
cable jacket 4" and strip each wire ¼”. Use the P.C. Board Wiring Diagram on the inside of the Power Center
door to locate the Four Function Remote terminals. Wire the remote according to the diagram.
5. At the Remote mounting location, press (do not screw) the Four Function Remote into the PVC pipe.
NOTE: Do not alter the Four Function Remote housing. Cutting the housing may damage its seal and will void
the warranty.
When replacing an old, threaded body style remote with a new four function remote, place 1/8" bead of
silicone sealant around base of remote and let cure. Add extra silicone sealant and install remote into
threaded adapter.

For Vertical Installation into the Spa Wall:
Install a 6" piece of 1½” or 1" schedule 40 PVC pipe in the pool/spa wall so that the SpaLink RS Remote will not be
constantly submerged. A 1½” to 1" adapter is included for use if 1½” PVC pipe is being used. This pipe will house the
remote installed vertically in the wall of the pool or spa. Carefully trim the end of the pipe flush with the wall after all tile
work is completed. There must be least 2" of clearance from coping stones or other raised objects to the schedule 40
pipe.
Install a reducer to the end of the 6" piece of pipe and run a ½” or ¾” electrical conduit underground from the
reducer to the AquaLink RS Power Center location (see page 10 of the AquaLink RS Installation Manual for further
details on the Power Center). Use sweep elbows for turns (do not use 90° Elbows) so that the SpaLink RS cable can
be easily pulled through later.
Use a snake (or similar tool) to pull the SpaLink RS cable through the conduit to the Power Center. At the Power
Center, feed the SpaLink RS cable into the low voltage compartment (left side). Strip the cable jacket 4” and strip
each wire ¼”. Use the P.C. Board Wiring Diagram on the inside of the Power Center door to piggyback (double-up) the
SpaLink RS wires with the 4-pin terminal bar. See the Wiring Diagram on page 3 of these instructions.
Apply a silicone sealant around the edge of the cone-shaped base of the SpaLink RS and slide it into the adapter (if
one is being used), then into the PVC. At the mounting location, press (do not screw) the SpaLink RS into the PVC.
Place a 1/8” bead of silicone sealant around back of the SpaLink RS and let cure. NOTE: Do not alter the SpaLink RS

Mud Box Installation for Flush Mount SpaLink RS Remote.
If using the SpaLink RS Mud Box, it is important to make provisions for the hard-wired
SpaLink® RS Control before the pool/spa construction is complete by running
electrical conduit from the desired SpaLink location to the Power Center location.
However, do not install the SpaLink until construction of spa and deck is complete.
1. The mud box is for use with new SpaLink housing and frame only. This mud
box will not work with the old style SpaLink.
2. Use the dimensions below to make space for the mud box.
3. Install a one (1") inch PVC conduit from the Power Center to the back of the mud
box, so that the SpaLink RS Remote will not be constantly submerged.
4. The mud box's fitting is smaller than one (1") inch to allow
movement of the mud box within the PVC conduit. Use caulking
7.25"
or RTV to make up for the loose fit.
5. The smaller outlet on the mud box is for water drainage (if
needed).
a. Cut the end of the nipple and run a piece of tubing to the
nipple.
b. Run a piece of tubing to an appropriate spot away from the
mud box.
6. Place the SpaLink w/frame and "O" rings into mud box. The
SpaLink is smaller than the mub box to allow movement if the
mud box is not level. Use silicone sealant to adhere the frame
to the mud box. Apply the silicone to the under side of the
frame.
