    Swimquip Brass Slide (Push Pull) Valve Rebuild Question

    Hi all, I have been lurking for a couple months, learning about how to get my pool chemicals right. I found out I need to backflush quite a bit of water out of my pool due to hardness but my push/pull valve was jammed up. I finally was able to disassemble it and the o-rings are shot.

    I have been looking everywhere for replacements and have not had much luck. Can someone help?

    Here is my best guess at the o-ring specs based on the slot they are supposed to fit into:
    1 5/16 I.D. or 33.3375 mm I.D.
    1 13/16 O.D. or 46.0375 mm O.D.
    1/4 Wall or 6.35 mm Wall

    I am going to have to replace the entire valve? I can't find o-rings anywhere and my pool is starting to get very dirty.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dan

    Sta-Rite bought them and then Pentair bought Sta-Rite. See the Pentair web site. You should be able to find the part numbers and search out a supplier.

    I think I found it! This is by far the most active and best forum for anything I have ever seen. Thanks so much!

    For others with the same slide valve:
    Here it is on Pentair's website: http://www.pentairpool.com/pool-pro/par ... es-17.htm#

    and the o-ring is one of the following two:

    Thanks again,

    Lubricate.

    O-rings on anything never go on dry.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Just a note; Lowes and Ace Hardware both carry a large selection of o-rings. For anybody needing o-rings and can't find them you may want to give them a try. They'll most likely be EPDM but that's ok for pool use.
