Not really ... the Knife Valve assembly is cheap enough to purchase and simple enough to change ... fix it is my recommendation. Find the valve at a RV parts place or at your pool parts place.

Headlight exchange


Above each headlight assembly behind the radiator bulkhead there are two black "handles" that are for the latches that hold the headlights in place. Pull these handles up, and the headlight assembly should slide out the front. You can then replace the bulbs or, if you wish, the entire assembly. When done, just slide the assembly back in place and push the latch handles down. It should take about 5 minutes for each side.

Backwashing A Sand Filter with A Push/Pull Slide Valve or Multiport Valve


Lots of people are first time pool owners and pool professionals forget to teach these "newbies" about the simplest aspects of pool ownership.

One of the biggest questions we receive from new homeowners is "How do I go about backwashing my sand filter exactly?"

It doesn't matter if you have a Hayward, Pentair, Jandy, Sta-Rite or any other number of Sand Filters on the market they all utilize the same basic valves for backwashing; a push/pull slide valve or a multiport valve.


To backwash with a multiport valve:
1) Shut off pump motor.
2) Press down on valve handle, rotate valve from FILTER to BACKWASH position.
3) Roll out any backwash hose or open any waste line valves.
4) Open air bleeder assembly on filter, and turn pump on.
5) Watch pressure gauge for backpressure and hose for kinks. Be prepared to shut off pump quickly.
6) After hose fills with water, run for 3 - 5 minutes or until water runs clear.
7) Shut off pump motor and move multiport valve handle to RINSE position. Run on rinse for 15 - 25 seconds.
8) Shut off pump motor and move multiport valve handle to FILTER position.
9) Turn pump back on and note lower pressure.
10) Roll up backwash hose so the dogs use it as a chew toy.


To Backwash a sand filter with a slide valve:
1) Shut off pump motor, roll out backwash hose.
2) Twist to unlock plunger T-handle, push or pull(depending on manufaturer) the plunger 2" - 3".
3) Open air bleeder assembly on filter, and turn pump on.
4) Watch pressure gauge for backpressure and hose for kinks. Be prepared to shut off pump quickly.
5) After hose fills with water, run for 3 - 5 minutes or until water runs clear.
6) Shut off pump motor and push T-handle back down into locked position.
7) Turn pump back on and note lower pressure.
8) Roll up backwash hose.

Now you are a backwash Guru!

How to repair disc-type faucets


DISC-TYPE FAUCETS

  • Disc faucets may have one or two handles. The water is controlled by openings in the two discs. When the discs are rotated to align, the water flows; when the discs are misaligned, the water shuts off. If the discs wear, the worn discs cause the faucet to leak. Simply turning the handles harder will not stop the leak.

  • To repair a leak in a two-handle disc faucet, turn off the water and remove the handle on the side that's leaking.

  • Use pliers to pull the disc assembly out of the faucet.

  • Beneath the disc unit is the seat assembly, or seal. Replacing this special O-ring may stop the leak.

  • You may need to install a whole new disc assembly for faucets that have been used over a long period of time. In this case, all moving parts of the faucet will have been replaced and should last as long as the original discs did. The parts of some disc units snap apart into a separate bonnet assembly and bottom cap.

  • To repair a leaking single-handle disc, turn off both the hot and cold water and remove the handle to expose the disc assembly. Take out the screws to lift the assembly out of the faucet.

  • You'll notice that beneath the disc unit are three O-ring seals. Though unlikely, water could be leaking between the unit and one of these seals. In this case, you may be able to stop the leak by cleaning the disc assembly and faucet body and installing a new set of seals. If that doesn't work, the entire disc unit must be replaced. This will renew all moving parts.

  • Replacing the unit is fairly simple. Place the three O-rings into their recesses in the bottom of the disc unit. Then install the unit and tighten the screws. Finally, replace the handle–and you're done!

Hard to pull up handle


Are you asking about faucet handle or pop up drain . If you are referring to faucet handle the easiest thing to try first is to remove center cover from top of handle. It's the one with the moen insignia or name on it. These are usually just a friction fit so use a small blade screwdriver or knife blade to carefully remove cover. There is a screw that holds handle on cartridge. Remove screw and gently remove handle by pulling up. If you have not shut off water supply valves this will open valve and run water. Push down on carteidge stem to shut off water. Use a penetrating oil such as WD-40 and spray around cartridge.Allow a few mins. then pull cartridge stem up and push it back down several times spraying with penetrating fluid several times. You can move stem by gripping with pliers. This should help free cartridge . If this helps you can save on service call. Reinstall handle with screw and center cover. Hope this helps. Thanks

Rear door latch will not open handle seems to have insufficient travel to free mechanism


Try pressing your left hand against the tailgate opening handle assembly (black plastic around the pull handle) while at the same time pulling on the handle to open it. I believe the entire assembly is being pulled out and you have to press on it, to hold it in place, while pulling on the handle. Make sure to hit open on the power lock a few times before trying this. Good luck.

Two possibilities come to mind. 1. The shut off valve (in the wall under the fixture) is almost closed. 2. Trash in the valve assembly or a broken seal. Turn off the water at the shut off valve and remove the handle and stem from the fixture. Clean and replace anything broken. You could even open the shut off valve for a second to flush any junk out of the fixture. Reassemble, turn water back on, and test. This should solve your problem.

My toilet handel is broke.how ican install


Remove the water cover lid then remove the chain connector at the handle looks like a diaper pin then unscrew the nut holding the handle in place and feed the handle assembly threw the nut and buy new handle assembly and replace. IF it's just the chain is broke replace the chain they are sold separately at any hardware store. IF it's the valve you can replace it as well by shutting off the toilet water valve, next disconnect the hose and go buy a float assembly that is similar. Adjust the new float assembly to be the same length as the old one then install gasket on the float and put in the hole for the float, install second gasket on the float on the outside and then install the nut and install the hose. Before you tighten the nut on the float make sure the float valve lines up with the handle and the float then tighten down hook up new chain and tighten the water hose, tighten the nut on the float and open the water valve. Watch the water level fill up if it looks like it's going to run over you will have to adjust the float so that it does not run into the throat of the toilet.

My bathroom faucet wont turn off. I can turn the handle but the water still comes out. the faucet has 2 handles


Hi, W/D here.
You'll need to shut the water off under the sink. Usually when the water won't shut off, the washer (or cartridge) is damaged or loose. With the water shut off, open the valve. Remove the handle and trim piece that surrounds the stem. With a wrench or socket, remove the valve cartridge from the body. The part that you need to unscrew isn't the first nut that you see when you look down the shaft, but rather, the ut just past that. The first nut is the packing gland adjustment, the second holds the two halves of the valve together. Usually, it isn't hard to get these apart. Pull the part out of the valve body and check the washer at the base of the stem. It is probably loose. Tighten it back down, or if it is damaged, replace it. While the valve is apart, stick your little finger in the valve hole and feel the valve seat. It should feel smooth and free of nicks and grooves. Should you need any parts, you can take your old parts with you when you go to the hardware store, and match them up. If the seat is damaged, you may need a 'seat removal tool' also available at the hardware store. A washer is the easiest repair. If the damage is much worse that thet, consider a repair kit. I will have the upper valve assembly that you pulled out, washer and replacement seat, along with the gaskets.
Reinstall your valve, making sure that the stem is backed out as if full open. If you put the valve assembly together with the valve stem 'closed', you can damage the washer. Once all back together, adjust your packing gland. It should be adjusted to be just tight enough to keep water from flowing out alongside the valve stem without being difficult to operate. Reassemble the trim, replace the handle. Close the faucet valve and open the water supply valve. That should do it.
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution -- thanx!
