    Spider Gasket replacement

    I know that there are threads regarding replacing gaskets and whether or not to use adhesive or silicone.
    I was hoping to get a response from someone who may actually have the same multi-port valve and what they've done, but would appreciate any and all feedback.

    Mine started leaking out the backwash line just a couple of years after install.
    Installer came back out and replaced, I remember they told me I had to leave the pump off for a few hours to let the adhesive setup before I turned it back on.

    I know everyone is divided on gluing or not gluing gaskets back in...the installation manual mentions them being installed with just silicone, but I continue to have issues with the backwash line leaking.

    Now that its looking like my pool has finally started to clear up, I was trying to gather all I needed to know so I can fix this.

    Sorry no one has helped yet. Hopefully there's a pentair owner that can chime in soon.

    Thank you. At this point if really just like to know if just the magic lube the guy at Leslie's told me to use is really all I need. For any other multiport valve owners, is replacing these gaskets every few years just part of ownership?
