My Hayward Vari-Flow multi port valve is leaking slowly from its underside. I “think” it needs to be replaced. Is it as simple as turning everything off and unscrewing the unions and replacing it? B1495397-15DB-43B1-8FC6-B1B784477A8D.jpegC1368DE7-7ED9-4FD9-9765-E0564CAC0EA7.jpeg

Yep, pretty much. Just make sure you get the same valve.

Unless it's cracked, those valves are pretty easy to rebuild. A few o-rings, springs, and washers are about all that's needed.
