Question about Sta Rite Pool & Spa
Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
You need to replace the gasket inside the valve to stop the leak and then run the pool using just the main drain until you can get more water in. The gasket kit is pretty cheap and not to hard to replace. We can try to get you the part number if you can post the valve brand and model. You should be able to call any local pool store with the brand of filter and get the part you need without any trouble.

Testimonial: "changing the gasket resulted in about 95% of the leak stopping. still a small amount going down the drain but nothing like before. thank you"
