    Multiport spider gasket

    At our church pool we've had some problems with operator errors, leading to my having to replace two multiport spider gaskets. In the past I've installed them using Permatex 6B gasket adhesive. It seems to hold well if the operators hold the multiport handle ALL the way down but I'm wondering if there's a better product out there for this application? Solutions, thoughts, and opinions welcome! Thanks.

    You might want to try HH-66 Adhesive, it skins quickly and has a very elastic quality (like webbing)

    Thanks, Kevin. Who makes HH-66 and where do you buy it? I've never heard of it. Google search for HH-61 doesn't come up with anything.

    first check the multiport lever and spring and what not, I think I paid $20 or so and had it completely rebuilt by warehouse pools, they didn't charge anything to do the repair...works like new.

    then with the new gasket, my pool buddy, who has worked on them for 14 years now, suggests using super glue under the gasket and push down and seat it well; it'll keep the gasket from being pulled up and keep it from getting tangled up underneath. also, he told me it supposed to be a dry fit gasket, that was something new as everyone else told me to lube it up...

    I've always glued them in dry before, using Permatex 6B. Some say lube-some don't.

    I get my HH-66 from my local liner fabricator. Pocono pool products. I found it on google too though. I use it on vinyl because it doesn't temp weaken it
