    Default Pentair check valve/divertor

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a temporary solution to stop a damaged check valve/ divertor from leaking? Lost about a foot of water last night checking damaged part (Pentair part # 263042z). Replacement coming from Amazon tomorrow.
    Flap on part was covered in what looked like deteriorating white rubber. Same thing happened a year ago and I'm told this part should last longer. Thanks.

    Sorry no one got to you. Did you get your part? Did you figure out how to stop the check valve?

    I got the replacement part from amazon with expedited shipping and everything is fine again. I could not figure out a temporary fix to prevent the water from draining so had to continually re-fill to prevent the pump from sucking air. I have an infinity edge with auto refill but if the pool gets too low overnight the basin drains faster than the auto fill can replenish. Might purchase a spare valve in a few years to keep on hand, I'd estimate life expectency to be less than 10 years so I have some time to think about it.

    It's ok to turn your pump off for a couple days if you need too.
