Sorry, I hate to use the work "limp", but not sure how else to describe it. Replaced the spider gasket last week. When I bolted the multiport valve back on and tightened everything up, I noticed that the handle has some play in it. By play I mean it moves up and down freely, but when it actually contacts the valve it will still push it down and rotate around as it should. Before I replaced the gasket I do not believe it did this.
As far as I can tell the filter works as it should, but I have barely run it. I just want to see if this is normal before I try and run it for any length of time.
