    Valve leaking on sta rite filter!! Help!!

    The valve just stared pouring water after I had backwashed. It is a sta rite model T-210wf. Do I have to replace the valve or can it be repaired.

    I have to assume it's a multi-port valve attached to the top or side of your filter. Perhaps it simply didn't get seated correctly in the slot provided.

    If you are unsure what type valve it is, post a pic and we'll help you get it fixed.

    It is repairable and isn't really that complicated.

    What do you think the problem is? I took the handle of, and seemed to be some kinda lub or grease type stuff.

    It sounds like the spring is broken. It'll be under the top works and since you have to pull it apart anyway I'd go ahead and replace the spider gasket and o-rings while I had it apart.

    Your valve probably has a replaceable diverter assembly, the top of which is the part the handle pins to. If you take all the bolts out around the valve, you can get to the spring and diverter and see what has happened, assuming your plumbing has unions to let you lift the top off the valve.
