Water is leaking from around (underneath) the handle of my Pentair multiport valve. After reading through several posts, it seems that it might be the spider gasket but could possible be some other things. We are in our third year with the pool and it runs year round so is it safe to say that the spider gasket needs replacing? I wasn't sure what the life expectancy was. BTW: The pump is always off when I move the valve. I will probably have to order parts so it might be best if I order all possibilities at the same time.
Also, from what I have read here, it seems fairly easy to do. There is noticeable water on the pad below valve but hopefully I have a little time before I get the necessary parts to fix.
Thanks again for all the great helpful folks out there. Today high 96 and Monday 97 and not a cloud in the sky. So thankful that we have a pool!
