    Hayward filter valve problem

    I have an above ground pool with a Hayward sand filter. The problem is the Hayward valve on top of the filter Vari-Flo XL valve model #SPO714TI

    the problem is the the valve will not drop back into its full operation position after switching it from one position to another. This alows water to be discharged through the waste position. I have pulled the top for the assembly apart several times cleaned it. After I reassemble it, it dose not seat as it should. I see no obstructions and can not figure out what is keeping it from setting a proper seat to the assembly. When it is off there is full travel and no play in the Handel but as soon as I assemble it, the handle is loose and has play in it thus not seating.

    Thanks
    Alan

    Welcome to TFP!

    There should be a spring inside the valve that holds the handle in place. It sounds like that spring has broken, or otherwise gotten misplaced.

    The spring is fine and in place.

    for some reason the bottom plate will not fully travel to its set position.
