    need to replace spider gasket on multivalve

    I have a pentair multivalve (261055)and need to replace the spider gasket. I have read different instructions and not sure what to do. Do I need to glue down the gasket with loctite 401 and if so do I glue just at certain points or the entire gasket. Once it is in should I lube the gasket.
    Thanks for any help

    More than one approach might be acceptable....I would certainly ask Pentair.

    Tried to ask on the pentair site but no response in 2 days. Guess I might have to call. Was hoping someone here might know.

    There are a couple how-to videos on youtube. Maybe they'll answer your question.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Talked to a Pentair tech rep a little bit ago and she said to use 4 or 5 dots of glue to hold the gasket in place and no lube needed on top of the gasket once installed.
