    Hayward Vari-Flo XL Valve (Model# SP714) STUCK!

    Hi All,

    Jumped in my MN pool for the first time last night and it felt great, noticed the water was a little high so I went over to the pump/filter and turned the handle to waste, got the water level right where I want it and turned the handle back to filter, turned the pump back on and the water continued to "waste", I believe it is stuck in the waste position... should I order a new Hayward Valve Control? Or does it need a new gasket? What would you do? TIA!

    Good day, You can order a complete Handle, Cover and key assembly that will just drop in SPX0714BA. Just need to take out all the screws on top and drop in new key assembly. Or you can change out the key SPX0714CA which requires removing everything for repair. The BA is easier. Here is a link to the manual

    Thank you, I did end up taking it apart and the gasket was twisted. I took it out, lubed it up with Vaseline and put it back in for a temporary band aid fix, so I could at least get the pump filtering again. I did find some helpful pics. Thank you for the link to the manual. I was disappointed to find out I am not able to buy just the gasket and replace it. I will infact, like you said have to replace the entire top part. Bummer and more money... Ugh.
