    Which Side of new Spider Gasket goes into Grooves? Smooth Side or Ridged Side?

    My new spider gasket has two different shaped side: a smooth side and a 'ridged' side. The pool store said to put the ridged side down into the grooves with the smooth side up. Videos I've seen have it the opposite, with the smooth side down into the grooved with the ridged side up. Need some advice on which side goes up. The multiport is a PAC-FAB SM-10-2 DE, 2". Thanks.

    It was so old and beat up, I couldn't tell.

    See if this parts diagram set helps. See hard copy page E20 (upper right corners) or page 4 of 35 electronic copy. Part number 10 and asterisk noting orientation on that model if it matches yours - ridges are down.
