    The Goldline Control PACKAGE #3 - Individual Components: 

        • Aqua Solar AQ-SOL-LV Control • Hayward 3-Way Valve 
        • GVA-PKG Actuator • Goldline Pool Water and Roof Sensors

    AQ-SOL-LV Model 

    The AQ-SOL-LV unit utilizes the
    existing pool's circulation pump
    for solar heat pick-up. It works
    in conjunction with Hayward's
    3-Way Valve and Actuator
    model GVA-PKG, or with other
    manufacturer's valves. 

    The Hayward valve controls
    pool water circulation by the pool's
    filtration pump - either through the
    solar collectors, or bypassing the
    solar collectors.

    Specific Applications: Designed for both large residential and
    heavy-duty commercial pools in the large to Olympic-size pool heating
    range when the AQ-SOL-LV controller only needs a 3-Way Valve 
    Valve, or if a maintenance change-out or upgrade is required.

    Note: The unit has a front panel switch which provides for nocturnal pool
    cooling instead of heating. Cooling is used in conjunction with the pool's
    filtration pump being allowed to run during the early dawn, cooler hours.

    Installation Note: The AQ-SOL-LV is designed for outdoor use.
    For safety, the AQ-SOL-LV must be a minimum of 5 feet horizontally
    from pool or spa.

    3-Way Valve

    The 3-Way valve works in conjunction with either of the Goldline controller models, and is remotely operated using the Goldline Actuator.

    When the controller is signaled by the sensors, and calls for solar heat pick-up, the Hayward valve immediately activates. The opening "diverter" valve then directs the flow of circulation through the solar collectors using the pool's filtration pump. 

    Hayward  3-Way Valves are designed to be totally maintenance free.

    Technical Specifications:
    The 3-Way Hayward valve is available in
    standard size 1 1/2" pool input to 2" solar system connection, or in
    the oversized 2" pool input to 2 1/2" solar system connection.

    1.5 inch I.D. / 2 inch O.D.  – Plumb 1.5” PVC pipe into the valve
    • outlet or put a 2” Fitting over the valve outlet.

    • 2 inch I.D. / 2.5 inch O.D.  – Plumb 2” PVC pipe into the valve
    • outlet or put a 2.5” Fitting over the valve outlet.  

    Hayward 3-Way Valves are designed to never leak, break, melt, slip,
    or lose pressure – even under the most demanding conditions. 

    Hayward Valve Features:
    • Designed for easy automation using Goldline 3-Way Actuator
    • Available in standard 1 1/2" - 2" and 2 - 2 1/2" sizes
    • Constructed of temperature and chemical resistant CPVC material

     Constructed using innovative port design for superior performance
    • Hayward 3-Way Valves are guaranteed for life
    • Do not leak, break, melt, slip, or lose pressure
    • Do not require lubrication, and may be mounted in
    • any position except upside down
    • 1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty

    Note: For a positive solar shutdown, or service to collectors during
    pump operation cycle, an isolation ball or gate valve must be used on
    the feed line for positive shut off.

    Assembly of Goldline Actuator to the Hayward 3-Way Valve

    In three easy steps the Actuator can quickly be attached to the top
    of the 3-Way Valve by any handy-person using a screwdriver: 

    1. Before attaching the Actuator to the 3-Way Valve, the Handle
    must be removed from the Valve. To remove the Handle, turn the
    thumb-screw by hand counterclockwise until removed, and then
    slide the Handle straight up and off the Valve Handle's spline. 
    removal of Handle

    2. Next determine the Actuator's proper orientation in relationship
    to the Valve's directional flow [per instruction manual]. Remove the
    four screws from the Valve body. Align the Actuator spline with the
    Valve spline, and push the Actuator onto the Valve spline. Use the
    four extra-long screws [included] to bolt the Actuator to the Valve
    where the four standard screws were removed. 
    assemble Handle

    3. Place the Valve's Handle onto the Actuator spline, and re-insert
    the thumb-screw turning clock-wise.

    The assembled units should resemble the image below.
    Note: The Valve could be in any one of three possible positions in 
    relationship to the Actuator, depending on the exact application.

    produced, and is UL Listed for safety and performance.

    Goldline Controls is proud to note that due to the reliability and
    performance of its products, it is the predominate supplier of product
    into the solar pool heating market, earning 70%+ market share of
    the solar pool heating market!


       • Why Solar Controls dramatically enhance performance

    A Solar Control Unit needs to be included as an integral component
    of any solar system on an inground pool, or large above ground pool. 

    Solar Controls are essential for maximizing the solar performance of
    any pool solar systems - even if the geographical location is in a
    consistently high solar effectiveness area. 

    By accurately monitoring the available solar radiation and the pool's
    temperature, a Solar Control Unit directs the solar system to function
    only when it can add heat to the pool, resulting in capturing the most
    solar/cost savings benefit out of any solar system. 

    Solar Controls also offer the additional benefit of thermostatic control,
    so the temperature can simply be set and effortlessly maintained. 
    Just set it and forget it! 

    Using a Solar Control assures high-limit protection, restricting the
    solar system from heating the pool/spa beyond the set temperature,
    a nice safety precaution! The GL-235 Control is designed not to let
    pool/spa water exceed 102°F, unlikely for a pool but very possible
    for a spa. 

    The Aqua Solar thermostatic control can also be operated at night to
    cool the pool if it is in an area where pools become too warm from the
    sun on their own during the summer season. 


       • Logic of necessity for Solar Pool Control Package

    Pools heated by solar energy need to have an accurate controller
    for two primary reasons.

    Initially, it is vital for proper performance to maximize the utilization
    of the solar heat available by circulating water through the collectors
    when solar rays can be absorbed - and not circulating when heat
    could be lost through reverse process.

    The second reason for an accurate controller is to allow the pool
    owner/operator to automatically adjust and maintain the maximum
    temperature desired.

    This turn-key controller package is designed for a straightforward
    installation, dependable operation, and easy serviceability. 

    A solar pool heating system can dramatically reduce or eliminate
    the rising monthly gas or electric power costs by heating your pool
    with free, abundant energy from the sun.

    Several recent studies using sophisticated monitored sites provided
    data that proved automatic controls were definitely beneficial.

    And installing a Goldline do-it-yourself package results in an immediate
    and dramatic reduction or elimination of pool heating costs!


    Function: Goldline Package controls entire solar pool heating system
    Benefits: Maximizes your swimming pleasure!
