    sta-rite backflow valve leaking from top

    Hello,

    first time post - regarding a sta-rite swimquip 2" wc212-134p backflow valve.

    getting pool ready for summer and now have a decent leak coming from the top where the piston come throught the top of valve hosuing and joins the handle. i disassembled and took a look, o rings look ok,

    i cleaned off the piston but leak is still flowing.

    is this a problem new o-rings should take care of ? the valve is older - is it worth simply replacing the whole unit?

    any help is appreciated.

    thanks
