Repair Help Air Control Valve Plumbing

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a Morgan spa 96 or 97 and am trying to replace the air control valve, it's so much the valve the problem its the plumbing. I tried replacing it to see it leak like a water fall. The valve goes down through the topside of the panel, and under the cabinet a sleeve goes over that valve. This sleeve has a another side port off of it. For another 1in PVC . Now the type of valve I used had a 1in slip fitting where a street elbow slipped into it, this being part of my problem. The sleeve has two seals top and bottom Another part is space I'm guessing these seals got missed aligned causing leaking and also the side port off that sleeve might have been disturbed bad looks to appear to be leaking also. Can this be re-designed

I can email pictures wasn't able to upload any here.

From your description (which you might want to reread, and rewrite), the problrem is NOT with the air control valve. These valves allow air to be sucked in when the jets are running. Under normal condition water is NEVER being forced up into the valve. About the only "abnormal" condition which WOULD force water up into the valve would be a malfunctioning jet, or jets.....e.g., the problem is not with the air control valve, but with a jet, or jets.
