Need to replace the spider gasket on a Hayward Vari-Flo. When I picked the new gasket up at the local pool store the clerks all agreed that I should use contact cement when installing the new gasket (I say all because I questioned the first guy when he said this).
I really don't like the idea of 'bonding' or 'glueing' the gasket in the valve.. I mean, what happens next time I need to replace the thing??????
So, I've seen instructions on the web recommending a 'water proof' grease be used.
Does it matter?????
