will this spring fit SM-20-2 SERIAL # 293? we have water leaking from blue hose when in filter position. Do you think we need a new handle as well?
I have a TM-22. Replaced spider gasket but i still get some weepage out backflow pipe when in filter mode. In addition, the handle which used to snap down vigorously into slot on filter head doesnt... Suspect weak spring... It is rusted ... L you agree.

1. Remove the screws holding the valve mechanism onto the valve body. Remove the mechanism from the body
2. Inspect the 'o' ring between the two valve parts, the spider gasket, and other parts for wear. (I had to purchase a new spider gasket at a local store. I should have purchased a repair kit from Inyo instead of just a spring.)
3. (After replacing the spider gasket, which was a separate and more involved job), reassemble the valve with the new spring. Get a friend to insert the pin in the handle while you compress the spring in the partly assembled mechanism. This requires three hands or, if you plan ahead like I didn't, a rig to hold the mechanism in a compressed position while you insert the pin yourself. The instructions that came with the valve include a suggested design for such a rig.
4. Reassemble the valve, making sure that the 'o' ring is properly set in place. Tighten the screw in an alternating pattern.
In my case, I had to clean out the remnants of the old spider gasket and glue the new one in place with silicone cement. I put the valve in the 'filter' position to hold the gasket in place, and did not put water through the valve for 24 hours.
5. Restart the pump per manufacturer's recommended procedure.

These valve springs corrode and fail over time and can cause damage to the piping system as a result of the valve slamming shut under pump pressure, rather than firmly seating under spring pressure before the pump is started. It seems that the springs could be coated with a polymer or elastomer to reduce or prevent corrosion.

Very quick ship and the replacement valve spring took care of the problem of water pressure pushing the valve plate up and allowing water to flow through paths it was not supposed to. Replaced a 10 year old spring which had weakened.
