This just indexed when I googled the term "hayward spider valve stuck open".
Here is my problem. I had a leaky spider valve so I bought another one. The handle/valve assembly is exactly the same as my old one. With all equipment turned off, I removed old one and try to install new one. I got the tab matched up so it should drop right in however unless I turn the handle and open the valve a bit, the thing won't push all the way in (even using nut). I put the old one in and have the same problem however the old one wasn't making my pool look milky.
