My sp714-a valve works fine except when on recirculation setting. When its on and in this setting, its leaking out of my backwash/waste line. What do i need to fix my valve?

Hello based off the information provided yes you will need to replace the Key/seal Assembly (Diffuser w/ Gasket Glued In) (spx0714ca) inside your valve. One of the gaskets chambers seems to be worn and not making a perfect seal.

I replace the Key/seal Assembly Diffuser w/ Gasket Glued In) (spx0714ca and must have mounted it wrong because the backwash does not flush the water just trickles out. Is there a picture or good explanation how it should be mounted onto the top with the handle.

I have an S210T2 with an SP0714T. It's started leaking out of the backwash port on any setting of the top mount (including closed). I've noticed the handle has a lot of play (I don't remember that from last year). I'm assuming SPX0714CA needs to be replaced, but what about spring/gaskets/rings? Suggested to replace the lot of them?

A     Answered on 6/11/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Craik, I would suggest this Hayward SPX714BA Complete Handle Assembly this will include the springs, handle, diverter and gaskets. Basically, everything that may be causing your issue.

my hayward sand filter model S 166 T water is coming out of both the return port and backwash port when on . WHY?

A     Answered on 5/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Ken. That's an indication that the diverter gasket is bad and will need to be replaced. The ports are not sealing allowing water to flow to other ports of the valve.

How I know that the gasket is not OK and a replacement is needed?

A     Answered on 1/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jorge. You will experience signs of the valve being hard to turn,  sand getting back into the pool, water leaking out of the waste port when in filtration mode. Inspecting the gasket will be the best way to find out if its bad.

My handle broke of when I tried to move it. Is this the part that I need to put the handle back on?

A     Answered on 6/16/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, If you have the SP0714T Valve and the handle is in good condition but the part that the handle is connect to is broken then yes. If the handle is broken then you will need to replace the Handle-SPX0710XF.
