Identification of multiport valve

Postby dbowler » Wed 27 Jul, 2011 10:22

I live in spain and my multiport valve is unrecognisable. i dont think it is a Haywood or Astralpool. i need to replace the spider gasket but none i can find fit it. the lid of the valve has writing in spanish, portuguese and english on a yellow background. it also has six bolts on the lid. to be honest it looks exactly like a haywood or astralpool. any ideas?

Thank you both. now registered and noticed "upload attachment" button. btw the spider gasket has 5 legs, but ones in the shops are too thin to fill the crevices.

Sorry folks, the prize goes to a nice lady in a pool supplies shop in Torrevieja, who identified the
valve immediately. It is a QP or Quimicamp. problem solved, spider gasket bought and installed. works like
a dream. thanks for your help.
