Hello fellow pool owners,
My question involves the Hayward Vari-Flo XL Valve model SP0714T1.
I want to replace the spider gasket, my local Leslie Pool Supply store tells me I have to replace the entire gasket assembly. I have looked on line and see the different gaskets for other models by Hayward but not the 714T1. Anyone run into this or have any suggestions of a web site that may infact carry this particular gasket. This is a fairly new sand filter unit it was replaced last year, but I have lost suction from the inlet side. When the Barricuda is attached we have to turn off the skimmer in order to have sufficient suction to run the cleaner. The entire pump was replaced this year, we have gained some suction, but not enough to run both. No leaks are detected at any of the pluming. The gasket has been lubed on the pump skimmer cover. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
