    The Hayward
    Control PACKAGE #2 - Individual Components: 

        • GL-235 Control  3-Way Valve 
        • GVA-24 Actuator Pool Water and Roof Sensors

    Hayward Controller - GL-235, Pool Control
    Hayward GL-235 Model

    The GL-235 unit utilizes the existing pool's circulation pump for solar heat pick-up. It works in conjunction with the Hayward 3-Way Valve and Actuator model JVA-24, or with other manufacturer's valves.

    This unit has the additional feature of being used with 12 or 24 volt actuators and will also operate a separate pump that is dedicated to solar circulation only. 

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

    The pump can be sized up to 1HP with 120VAC and 2HP with 240VAC.

    The GL-235 model has one low-voltage output for controlling a single valve and a second high voltage output for controlling a filter pump or solar booster pump.

    Specific Applications: Designed for both residential and medium-duty commercial pools in the medium to large-size pool heating range when the GL-235 controller needs to operate a 3-Way Valve, and when operation of a separate pump that is dedicated to solar circulation is also 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 GL-235 is designed for outdoor use. For safety, the GL-235 must be a minimum of 5 feet horizontally from pool or spa.

    Hayward valveHayward 3-Way Valve

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


    Hayward Actuator - Model JVA-24
    Hayward Actuator for 3-Way Valve Model GVA-24

    Straightforward and uncomplicated to operate, Hayward's Actuator is engineered to operate with both 2-way and 3-way valves, and can be installed using only a screwdriver.

    An adjustable cam gives Hayward's actuator more flexibility than many of the other actuators on the market. 

    Offering the highest torque output in the industry, with 22 oz per inch for maximum valve control ability and top solar panel performance.

    Technical Specifications:
    The Hayward Actuator for 3-Way valves incorporates bi-directional design for installation flexibility, plus a 180 degree rotation with 90 degree increments. Compatible for easy adaptation to 2- or 3-way valves. With energy-efficient design and universal sizing, the Hayward Actuator fits most valves. 
    Service Switch

    Unit includes service switch for quick service access [some models]. 
    The Hayward Actuator comes with 15 feet of heavy-duty cable
    prewired for installation. UL and CSA certification.
    1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty

    Assembly of Hayward Actuator to the 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.

        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 GL-235's 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 Hayward do-it-yourself package results in an immediate
    and dramatic reduction or elimination of pool heating costs!
