Hello everyone. Just registered today and this is my first post. Hopefully someone can give me a little insight on a problem I am having. After opening the pool this year, I noticed I was losing a lot of water every day (1-2" per day) I was afraid I had a leak in a pipe, but never had any soft spots in the yard. Then one day, it just stopped, and everything was fine. I vacuumed yesterday (to waste) and after going back to filtration on my valve, it started again. My wife suggested that I check the spider gasket in the valve. Well, it is pretty shot, and I am having a hard time getting it out because whoever put it in, glued the entire thing down. My problem is that while trying to get it out, I broke a piece off of one of the 'spoke' channels that the gasket sits in. I am afraid that this will cause it to leak and continue my problem. If it does leak, can you just buy the piece that the gasket sits on, or do you have to replace the entire piece? I am pretty new to pools and I am learning as I go, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
