Multi-Function Valve Stuck On Filter (Brand New)
Posted 30 April 2010 - 04:56 PM
Is it the sand that is causing the valve to get stuck?
Should there be ABSOLUTELY NO sand in the area where the multi function valve is?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated...right now I can't backwash my filter... it's stuck on filter unless I disassemble it AGAIN!

The shaft of the valve key passes thru the valve cover and an o-ring is located at this point. The only way the valve could get stuck is if this o-ring swelled & caused binding between the valve shaft and the valve cover, or if a good amount of sand gets between the valve shaft & the valve cover. You can download a diagram and owner's manual for the valve at www.haywardnet.com. You probably have the SPO714 (top mounted) OR SPO715 (side mounted) valve. The valve's model number will be one of two places. 1. On the large label on the valve cover or 2. On a small label on the side of the valve.
