    Leaking backwash hose.

    Good day. Just getting my pool ready and seem to have a leaking backwash hose, in both filter and bypass. From what I've read that would indicate a spider gasket problem? Can anyone help me get the right thing by telling me which number on the list I need? Or which part number or something to help.

    Also, the hole where I screw the pressure gauge has a small crack. I've ignored it for 3 years now, but just wondering if I could get this to solve both problems at once?

    Thanks for all your help.

    That should do the job. Be sure you put some silicon pool lube on the o-ring before you install the new multiport valve.
