I have a TM-12-L. Recently changed pipe from 1-1/4" to 1-1/2". Started leaking through backwash, changed spider gasket. Still leaking. Changed back to 1-1/4", still leaking. I have a 1hp pump, can this valve Handel the flow rate or does it need replaced?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/26/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Jeremy, I would recommend inspecting the spring on the handle assembly. if the spring is not compressing/expanding like it should, you will not get a water tight seal.

How do you remove the whole valve to change the sand? Does it unscrew? Previous unit had a clamp. Regards John

John, This valve is a clamp on style valve. You would release the pressure in the system then remove the clamp assembly to remove the valve.

Hi, I just installed a new Praher TM-12-L 1.5 Top Mount Multiport Valve and I have a leak at the interface between the valve pump and return ports and the 1 1/2" PVC male-slip adapters I installed there.

Hello Jason, You can use a strong base silicone and make sure it is dry before turning on, which is a few hours from time of application.

?     Asked on 7/30/2016 by Howard

Hi Folks I have a 15 year old pool with a very minor drip on the bottom two inch connection of my Hayward 6-way valve. It is the output connection to the Triton DE filter. I am contemplating using a "Leak-B-Gone" snap on connector and gluing to the bottom of the valve. Frankly I don't want to replace the valve and re plumb because I will undoubtedly screw up "something". Any thoughts? Thanks for reading, Howard
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/4/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Howard, Anything less than re-plumbing the valve will only be a temporary fix. If you're unable to do the job you can have someone do it.

The pipe from the pump to the multiport: should it go to the top of the multiport, ie is this the hole for the intake to the filter? Service people have it going to the bottom hole and dirty water is shooting out the returns when I vacuum? Mysterious??

Hi Curt, The pipe from the pump will go to the port on the valve that is labeled "PUMP" which is the top left port. The lower right port is the "RETURN" port which is goes back to the pool.
