    Help. Replacing Hayward Muli port spider do i need to glue it?

    Hi all,

    Replacing my 5th leak this weekend. I am having an aweful time because the spider gasket was glued in the multiport valve. Do I need to glue and or lube the replacement gasket?

    I have no idea why it was glued. Maybe it just seemed to be to you? I mean, it ain't like it's going anywhere! Clean that channel real well, lube that puppy up all over, and reinstall it.

    Problem is it sits loose in the seating channel I can see it lifting with water flow

    Never done one myself, but the youtube videos and older threads frequently mention a couple drops of superglue.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
