    Help Filter/Pump problem

    Hey Guys, I need some help in a bad way.

    For some reason whenever I vacuum my pool for some reason the head on my multi port valve lifts off the spider gasket and water "pours" out of the waste line, also whenever the pump shuts off I can hear air being pulled back into the filter through the waste line.

    I have taken the valve apart and cleaned and inspected the spider gasket, I have also added a check valve to the feed line on my pump in case I was developing an air pocket.....

    I fully submerge the hose in the pool and make sure there is no air in it......but as soon as I start vacuuming air gets pulled into the system from somwhere because the return in the aquagenie starts spitting out

    The main spring in the multiport may be weak. How old are valve & filter?
