20210410_123406.jpgWhere can I get a clamp for my Jandy SFTM24-2.0 multiport valve? See pictures attached.
I don't want to pay for a whole new valve just to get the clamp.
The clamp cracked when the pump was left on during a SLAM and built up too much pressure. I was out of town for a couple of days and wasn't around to check on the filter pressure.
Has anyone had this type of failure? By the way a third of the water got pumped out of the pool through the flange!
Anyway, local pool store wants me to buy a new valve to get the clamp.
This filter got installed in 2018.
Should I dump out the sand and check on the laterals or just reclamp it and backwash the junk out of it and move on?
Any advice?
