Leak while in filtration mode. Please help.

Postby dmiles2000 » Sun 10 Aug, 2008 19:38


I'm having a problem after I backwashed and rinsed. When I put my filter in filtration mode a small stream of water keeps running out of the pipe where my backwash water exits. What is my problem? I can't get it to stop and can't run my pool because it will eventually lower my water level. Can someone give me some insight as to what it might be.

Your multi port valve is allowing the water to pass. Replacing the spider gasket in the multiport valve should fix it.
Some people just install another valve down stream and close it when you are filtering. This is a bandaid not the cure.
