Back around the middle of July, my spider gasket failed, and running the pump/filter overnight would result in a 3-4 in water loss. The only way to stop the water was closing the valves near skimmer and the outflow.
Intex doesn't sell just the gasket, and I have to replace the 6-way valve, which is fine - it's under 50 dollars. However, they are OUT OF STOCK.
They told me the ETA for more was the end of August. Now they are telling me it is the end of October.
My pool has sat untouched since the middle of July, and is a nasty green swamp.
I would close the pool if I could, but with the pump/filter rendered useless, I don't even know how to close it. The past two years we left the pool up, but covered, and the pool was clean.
I don't know what to do now.
