1st why are you removing the valve so much? you might be proforming a routene task incorrectly . also when i put any valve back in i allways give it a lite coat of waterproof grease on o-rings and ball cock, this stuff can be got from any well stock hardware store in the kitchen sink section (same stuff you use on faucets) so you know it\'s food grade ,dont use car grease !!!!

SOURCE: I have the Pentair AT 251501 in-ground pool pump.

Yes, but not recommended. If you are going to use it on an above ground pump the system head will drop to a very low number and the pump will operate very high on its pump curve causing a couple of potential problems.

First, your filter will have to be rated for the high flow. I do not have Aqua Tools curves or numbers to give you an exact figure but if you have your horsepower you can look it up on the web. Your filter needs to be rated that high or you will have problems; even a filter failure.

Your pump will exceed the hose flow ratings and may require PVC plumbing to operate.

You should consider plumbing in a throttling valve on the pump discharge to help moderate these problems.

I overfilled my pool and need to drain the excess

if you have a sand filter. you can economize and perform a long backwash cycle. this will clean the sand and lower the water level. otherwise, just use the drain/waste option. if you have a cartridge filter, your manufacturer should have installed a three way drain valve between the pump and filter. by turning this valve, the water will be diverted from the filter to waste

I have sand coming out of the bottom of the davey tagelus 230 sand filter and in the pool. is this repairable with a service or should after over 25 years look at a replacement?

25 years????

That is awesome, and you absolutely got your moneys worth.

Get a new one, but if budgets are slim, as with most of us, then you can repair your filter...

Get a new drain and lateral assembly. (that is what failed)/

You will need to know the size and or model of your filter.

You will need to remove the valve if top mount; shop vac all of the sand out then rinse tank.

Install the new lateral ass\'y then...

Add new filtration media (recommend glass over sand) and reassemble any plumbing removed to access internal of tank.

Good Luck

I'm getting a little sand in the discharge during back wash

that is usually caused by damage to the fingers (laterals) on the standpipe. most times this damage comes from improper winterization or when sand is changed by non professional

Change sand in tagelus filter

So you have a "TA" filter. Which size?
It does not matter really, otherwise I would have been able to know how much sand you you have to remove and how much to put back in.
Anyway, To change sand you have to remove the MultiPort Dial valve on top.
Then, you can either unplumb the filter and roll it over on its side and using a garden hose, start washing the sand out or use a shop vac, with keeping it upright.
Whatever you do NOT damage the laterals on the bottom of the filter. When refilling with sand you want to make sure all the laterals are undamaged and in the down position. Always fill the filter half full of water, at least over the laterals by a few inches, to keep the sand from damaging the laterals while re-filling the filter with sand. Make sure you use pool filter sand and not play sand! And... cover the stand pipe!!! Use duct tape or some kind of covering (spout cut off a water bottle then covering the pipe). Otherwise you will get sand into the standpipe and into the laterals, then you have another problem.

GASKET CHANGE: What steps should I follow to change a leaking gasket on the diverter on the valve of my DAVEY TAGELUS 230 sand filter?

make sure the valves on the outside of the pool are closed so when you open up the valve to change the gasket the pool water will not continue to run out of the filter.
Once you are secure about water flowing out of the pool through the filter you can remove the bolts holding the filter body together and change the gasket.

Pentair Quad DE system was installed without multiport valve

This is a DE (Diatomaceous earth) IT doesn't have sand and doesn't backwash. You use the bump handle (with pump off and valves closed and vent open and drain dirty water/earth out) Here is a link to the manual for your filter If isn't the exact model they are all on their web site:

Pentair filter

I am sure that you already have an answer to this, but IF you can not read the valve label sticker, call the Pentair Customer Support 1-800 number. They will send you out a new label, free of charge.

For referrence, the waste position is ALWAYS over the waste port on the valve.
