    A sand filter head valve rebuild question

    Hi all! I recently got a Aqua tools, AT3120B Sand Filter unit and the head valve allows water to go out all the ports. I'm guessing it needs a rebuild, but I'm having trouble finding a gasket kit. My question is, has this company been bought out by someone else, or will a different brand gasket kit work?

    I'm not finding anything that indicates the company was bought out. Sometimes, the multiport valves are designed to be replaced as one piece, and you may not be able to find a kit to rebuild it. I would suspect the spider gasket is bad. If you take off the multiport valve and take it to a pool store that services equipment they may be able to tell you if they have a replacement part that will work.
