Hi guys, my pump continues to loose it's prime and I 'm searching the problem. I removed my filters valve which is a pentair hi flow 6 way valve. I noticed the spider gasket appears to be messed up, but I also notice a part in the valve body which looked broken. Please take a look and let me know if that piece in the picture is infact broken and if you guys think it is an important part and could be causing me to loose prime.
When I turn the pump off you can immediately hear water rush out from the valve so I think that's where my problem is.
These pictures are from the valve below the diverter. Thanks so much.
