How To Identify Faulty Pool Filter Valve Parts

Pool filter valves enable user control over water flow and the direction of water flow. Some common complications associated with faulty pool filter valve parts include:

· Water waste due to leaks in the backwash line
· Insufficient filtration that results in dirt particles that end up being returned.
· Full filtration failure.

During the process of removing dirt and debris from a pool, the water travels within a closed loop of piping, hair and lint strainer, and the pool pump. A pool chemical feeder for disinfectants is typically attached to the filtration system. An efficient pool filter system not only removes algae and other small particles from the water, it also adds the correct mixture of disinfectants. The pool filter valve is central to the management of this entire system.

Causes of Faulty Pool Filter Valve Parts
Weather and time always affect the efficiency of pool filtration systems. Prime areas of pool filter valve failure involve pressure points such as those areas regulated by pool valve o-rings, and moving components such as spring bearings and handle springs. However, extreme cold weather can also result in cracked locknuts, shafts, and diffusers.

Locating The Correct Pool Filter Valve Parts
In most events, pool filter valve parts are easy to order and easy to replace. However, unnecessary disassembly of a pool filter valve may result in lost o-rings, cracked elbows, or even a broken drive pin. If you are uncertain concerning the repair sequence, or if you are unsure of which pool filter valve component is malfunctioning, perhaps you should call in a local technician before ordering your replacement parts.

Maintenance Tips
Leakage is one sign of a blown pool filter valve gasket. However, if you remove the plunger and do not discover any broken or missing disc o-rings, apply a basic o-ring lubricant before reassembling the unit. This may correct the problem.

Basic pool filter valve maintenance should include a once per year lubrication of the valve o-rings. This may require that you remove the plunger from the valve body. We suggest that you download or purchase a maintenance manual that is specific to your pool filter valve unit.
