Spider gasket for Pentair Sand Filter

Postby fern88 » Mon 18 Jan, 2016 20:40

Hello All,

I have Pentair Sand filter for my pond and it seems to be leaking from everywhere
when the filter is running. The spider filter attaches to Pentair's 272512 Diverter.

I can only find the diverter with the gasket. They don't seem to only sell the gasket by itself.
Anybody know if there is a site that sells only the gasket? Thanks!

Seems like they only sell the gasket with the diverter online. I have found that there is a lot of compatability between different models of spider gaskets so if you can take your diverter to your local pool store you will probably find a suitable replacement gasket. You may need to stick it in though.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful :oops:

No worries

Good luck with replacing the new diverter.
