    Re: Leaking multiport valve - question on best course of act

    Hayward 715xr50 multiport valve , replaced all the o-rings now it works but water is leaking from under the handle. I think it might be warn out !! 12 years old. Should i replace the top assembly or the entire valve ???
    Does the bottom part wear out ???

    I think there are supposed to be o-rings on the shaft? Or maybe the spring has gotten weak and not forcing a good seal.
