Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me figure out why my Hayward 710xr50 is spouting water from the center post. I made the mistake of doing maintenance because the handle was a bit stiff. Upon reassembly the center leaked very badly. I chose to do a full overhaul. I bought the kit from leslies, ouch, and installed. It's leaking just as bad. I think I may have reasswembled wrong but I haven't been able to find a good set of instructions or a schematic to verify.

Hey there Dickey, I believe most multiport valves are somewhat stiff when turning.

Have you looked at Youtube for videos, I believe they have some on replacing the gaskets and such.... may we helpful to check it out.

Good luck, I wish I had more useful information for you.
