Hello, There can be many causes. Have you inspected the spider gasket and diverter/rotor?

How do you put this on under the valve handle?

A  Answered on 2/10/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Mike - First, remove the 6-8 screws that hold the key,cover and handle assembly to the body of the valve. You will then need to compress the key,cover and handle assembly so that you can pop the pin out of the handle. You can pop the pin out by using a hammer and screwdriver. Once the pin is out you can disassemble the valve and replace the non-metallic bearing.

I need to replace the non-metallic bearing on my valve and I just read your explanation to Mike but I'm not understanding why I need to remove the screws before I depress the handle and tap the pin out. Do I remove the screws lift the entire assembly out of the body then depress the handle/spring to tap out the pin?

A  Answered on 9/15/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gerry. It will be difficult to replace the Non-Metallic Bearing with the cover assembly still mounted to the valve body. Yes, you will have to remove the screws, lift the cover assembly out of the body, compress the handle/spring to tap out the pin.compress the handle/spring and tap out the pin in order to replace this bearing.

My pool motor was leaking water from the housing.

I disassembled the motor, removed the impeller, and replaced the seal. BUT when I replaced it, I placed the ceramic side facing the wrong way, and rapidly developed another leak.

After checking out some of the helpful videos here, I discovered the problem, purchased another seal, and repeated the process, this time making sure the ceramic side was facing the right way. Also, as a note to anyone replacing one of these seals, make sure you DO NOT touch the ceramic with your fingers! It takes virtually nothing to damage the seal, so be careful or you'll be kicking out the cash for another seal before you know it.

Were these instructions helpful?
