    Pentair Valve 27-2101 leaking from handle

    Hello.. Just opening the pool and noticed a steady drip from just under the handle. It problably one drop every couple of seconds. Is this something I should fix or is better to replace the whole thing? I was looking at pentiars website and found a parts list but didnt know what to get. Any suggestions?

    You can take the valve off, take it apart and examine any rubber parts for swelling or cracking and replace whatever needs replacing. If everything looks ok use silicone pool lube on all the rubber parts and put it back together.
