    Part Recommendation for Leaking Hayward S244T

    My Hawyard S244T Filter has a very fine/slow leak from the collar during normal operations, typically at start up. A slight leak also appears from the pressure guage and multiport handle while on rinse setting.

    What parts should I be replacing? Spider Gasket? Addtional parts/O-rings?
    Thanks as always

    Spider gasket is not designed to be replaceable on that multiport.

    The leak at the pressure gauge can probably be fixed by removing and replacing the teflon tape.

    The collar leak is going to be the o-ring. I had the exact same thing happen on mine (180T) last year, and I just took the multiport off and reseated it and it went away. If that doesn't work, probably needs another one.

    As for the handle leak, can you be a little more specific? I can't picture it.
