In April of 2008 we purchased a HUD foreclosed home that had a pool. We finally moved in to the home May of 2009 and began working on the 'swamp'. The pool had been covered since October of 2006 so cleaning it up needless to say was a lot of fun. The multiport valve on the DE filter just kept leaking worse each week that we have run the pool and it has now reached a point that it is leaking way too much water so I went down to the pool store and purchased a new gasket. Now comes my problem. I am guessing that a combination of sitting dry and the heat from our area sort of 'melted' the gasket into the place where it sits. In trying to remove it from the multiport valve, it acts as if it is 'glued' in and is comming apart in peices. Can any one tell me of an easier way to get it out without coming apart in a lot of peices or damaging the multiport by scraping it out?
Thanks in advance.
