Why does my multi-port valve leak out of the backwash line?

  1. The valve spider gasket inside of the valve may have become worn or loose. If this is the case, you will need to replace the gasket. With the pump off, remove the cover screws of the valve. Gently remove the old gasket and glue, ensuring the channels are clean and clear. Use 3M adhesive or a similar type adhesive. Lay a bead of adhesive onto the flat surface where the gasket sits. Place the flat side of the gasket onto the diverter. Apply pressure to firmly seat the gasket and let dry for 24 hours or contact local pool/spa professional or dealer for repair.
  2. The connections from the pump going into the backwash valve may be reversed. Please review instruction sheets for proper installation.
