    Leaky backwash valve issue

    Please see the video. This my dads equipment

    It was doing the same thing with the old valve so he replaced the entire valve and all the o rings and lubricated well. It still leaks. It looks like it starts from underneath the base of the handle. Any ideas?

    I had the same exact problem with my push/pullvalve...replaced mine with this updated design from pentair. as you can see they changed the top of the valve to a threaded on end cap instead of that dreaded set screw. ... 7Aod-xcA0g
