Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
The spider gasket did not seat properly!
Take it apart and try again.
get the inside of the valve body completely dry, and make sure the grooves in which the gasket seats, are completely cleaned and free of any old sealant or gasket material.
Then apply a little bit of Silicone sealant, not much, into that groove. Then reassemble. Do NOT turn pump on for at least 8 hours to provide time for the silicone to cure, then try it.
Hopefully this helps you.

Either the gasket 'groove' had debris in it and needs to be cleaned, the gasket rolled out again, or there is a crack in the area the gasket sits allowing the bypass.

If you remove the top of the valve you will see a spider gasket that has pulled out of place. remove this and clean and dry throughly. Add a small amount of silicone sealer to the bottom of a new one and install in groves then replace top of valve and let sit for a couple of hours. That should fix. If not you will need to replace the top half of the valve also.

There is more than one version of these valves. The model like sp072 has a 5 spoke spider gasket that has one opening larger than the rest. Be sure it is in position so that the large opening lines up with the large opening in the valve. If it's a SP0714 then the rubber is molded on the valve itself and would have to be replaced together. In either case, the seal is provided by the spring pressure forcing the valve faces together. That is why you should depress the handle, and only turn the valve while it's depressed, and the pump is off. After you turn to the selected location, then you release handle, and the valve surfaces should spring back together. Be sure the lever has spring tension on it in case you left it out while working on it) You can download complete manuals from www.haywardnet.com Good luck!
