Hi everyone. Multi-port valve (WC112-148) spider gasket on a Sta-Rite sand filter is leaking (water to waste when on recirc., not so much on filtration). It's not so much a gasket, as it is a putty-like substance in the plug grooves. As such, it is sold as a plug / gasket assembly only. Is there a frugal pool-owner's solution, or best to just replace the plug (which I assume comes with new putty-like stuff)? A search revealed someone replaced the plug, just wondering if there's a cheaper alternative.
