    pool water around multi vale handle on filter

    Just noticed something that may very well have been happening all the time on my 4 yr old sand filter.
    Pool water is filling the cavity around the multi port handle and only seems to happen when timer turns pump off.
    Never over flowing , stops and stays level with top by handle.
    Next day when pump runs again by night time its dry again.
    Pressure always around 16lb-I install a new gauge every year.
    Just received all new o rings and flat disc washers other than the spider gasket in case I feel like replacing them but wonder if its something I should even worry about?
    Thanks for any advice

    Any leak is a constant worry--no matter how small. Replace that spider while you're at it.
