    pac fab multiport

    Our multiport (pac fab multiport 8 position 1.5 inch) has become increasingly noisy. It quiets down for a bit after a backwash/rinse but then seems to go right back to it. Kind of a high pitched whine.
    Are these things rebuildable? I see a spring in the schematic, which always worries me, having spent a few hours on hands and knees looking for a wayward spring... so is it something I can do myself?
    Also if anyone knows a good source in Canada for parts for this peice, I'd love to hear from you.

    Thanks for your help.

    I don't have a source but it's easily rebuildable.

    So if it's making noise, is that what I should be doing? Rebuilding it?

    If it's making noise it's a good indication that something is loose so rebuilding it is a sound plan. It could be a weak spring or a loose gasket.
