    Backwash valve leaking?

    I have a plunger type backwash valve. I just did a backwash the other day and now I noticed it's leaking from the top. Is there a rebuild kit for this? If so, can someone help me out with the PN#? If not do I have to replace the whole valve?

    Thanks,

    JB

    There is probably a rebuild kit, which is just a bunch of O-rings. You'll need the brand and model number most likely. If you can't find that, take several pictures of it and post them here, someone might recognize it. Then google it adding rebuild kit and you should get plenty of hits. You'll need a tube of pool lube to go with it.

    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.
