Is this a push pull valve or a multi-port?

Push Pull --- there is a screw in the edge to remove that will allow you to pull the assembly from the housing.

Multi-port --- 6 screws around the ring to remove.

of course --- turn the pump off before you do anything!

I hope I have answered your question.

    That is a different question or I misunderstood your original. The assembly I am talking about (on the push-pull or multi-port) is a replacable part. The handle (the part you are talking about) on the assembly ... I'm not sure about. I will have to inspect this when I get to the job. If it is, you should be able to purchase it at your pool supply.

    Thanks for the feedback ...

    I checked my filters ... my handles are integral with the operator ... no way to repair them ... yours are probably different ...

    I just looked at these comments again ... did you get your answer?

    If your valve is push-pull (goes up and down) and if you want to remove this 'lever' (wrong word ... about the right idea) from the body of the valve ... there is a pin that locks the handle in the up or the down position (filter or backwash). This pin doesn't allow you to remove the 'lever', only to lock it into position. There is a screw in the edge of the body that holds the top seal in place ... maybe two screws ... remove these screws and pull the handle ('lever') out of the body

The valve that you turn to change fil prositions the white ring under handle bnoke

Find the position where the pin that runs through the handle lines up with the slots in the valve top. Drive the pin through the handle with a punch and remove the handle then just drop a new ring in placeand replace the handle.

While vacuuming my swimming pool and the valve setting is on filter, the dirty water is returning into the pool. Ive just changed a brand new spider gasket, replaced #20 silica sand. Did i miss anything...

Try changing the setting on your pool filters control valve to waste. This will bypass the filter and vacuum directly to waste. If this works, it could be a problem with the filter's "filter" setting and you may need to service or replace your control valve.

Usually It makes no difference which way that handle goes. You didn't indicate what model valve you have. The handle turns 360 degrees. I usually lift the handle up so there is no spring tension on the valve plate, makes it much easier to get the srews in. Be sure your gasket is in proper position. Only turn valve with handle lifted, and with pump off.

How do I change the sand in my Hayward S220t Top Mount Pro Series Sand Filter

un-screw the entire top valve unit. I would duct tape over the top of the riser pipe at the top.You do not want to get any sand inside that pipe. Turn upside downand rinse out completely. Add new sand remove duct tape and replace top valve unit

Control Valve handle wont stay in position

The valve should be about $100. We sell it for 90 something. You can rebuild them with gaskets and the spring. There should be a model number on yours, care to post it? Something like SP711, SP714, etc.
