I have a 25x40 vinyl in ground chlorinated pool. Hayward sand filter model S244T and Multiport model SP0714T. The spider valve is shot and when recirculating, water spits out the waste port. Removing and inspecting showed most of the gasket gone. I went to the local store to get a replacement and they said I can only buy a full top replacement for $90+.00. I thanked them for thier time and walked out, but i am having trouble finding if i can actually replace just the spider gasket. My google searches show the gasket molded and part of the whole assembly and not just the gasket alone. Please tell me this isn't true, and if so, does anyone know the correct replacement spider gasket for this model ?
Sorry for the long winded question, just want to be thorough. I am in the middle of a SLAM and need to sort this out

I hope i did this right. (further reading) Last September my pool co. replaced the skimmer, new bottom (vermiculite), liner, stairs, coping and pump. Pool was semi destroyed by a felled tree. Filled entirely with city water - treated and covered on the second day. It was a big tree
