    Tagelus Sand Filter

    My filter is leaking from the backwash/waste hose when I place the valve in the filter position. I've replaced the Diverter w/gasket and the spring. Still leaks. Any suggestions? I'm new, so go slow. Thanks!

    I am assuming you mean the filter's spider gasket?

    Are you turning the pump off before moving the valve?

    Welcome to TFP.

    How bad is the leak? Is it really bad like the valve is wide open?
    I'd take the top off the valve and make sure that the spider gasket is still seated correctly.
