How to Replace Pentair 79200300 8-Hole Gasket

If you have a Pentair 79200300 8-Hole Gasket that needs to be replaced, you’re in luck. This particular gasket is relatively easy to replace and shouldn’t take too much time.

Here’s how you can replace it in no time.

Step 1: Shut off the power to the pool pump. Before you start working on the gasket, you should make sure that the power to the pump is shut off. This will prevent any accidental electrocution.

Step 2: Remove the old gasket. Using a flat-head screwdriver, carefully pry off the old gasket. Make sure you don’t damage any of the surrounding components in the process.

Step 3: Prepare the new gasket. Lay the new gasket onto a flat surface and make sure that all the edges are lined up properly. If there is any excess material, use a pair of scissors to trim it off.

Step 4: Install the new gasket. Carefully place the new gasket around the perimeter of the pump and press down firmly. Make sure all the edges are secured and there are no gaps between the gasket and the pump.

Step 5: Test the seal. Fill up a bucket of water and pour it onto the gasket to test the seal. If the water seeps through, the gasket was not properly installed and you’ll need to repeat the process.

And that’s it! Replacing the Pentair 79200300 8-Hole Gasket is a relatively simple process that takes just a few minutes. Just make sure that you’re careful and pay attention to detail so that the gasket is installed properly. Good luck!
