Product Description

Hayward Vari-Flo XL multiport control valve, made of our exclusive PermaGlass XL™ material and engineered for maximum flow at lower pressure drops will be the choice in multiport valves. It will retrofit any filter that has an SP071113 valve that needs replacement and upgrading. Does not include clamp and o-ring.

All Vari-Flo control valves feature an easy-to-use lever action handle that lets you "dial" up to six valve/filter functions: filter, backwash, waste, rinse, closed or recirculate. Complete with an integral sight glass that lets you see when the backwashing cycle is completed, our wide selection of valve configurations allows you to match the right Vari-Flo valve to the proper application; residential, commercial, top-mount or side mount. 

Vari-Flo Control Valve Functions

  • Filter - For normal filtering and regular vacuuming
  • Backwash - For cleaning filter sand bed of accumulated debris
  • Rinse - Use after completing backwash cycle to ensure all dirty water is rinsed out of the filter to waste
  • Waste - By-passes the filter for draining or lowering pool water level and for vacuuming heavy debris directly to waste line.
  • Recirculate - Water is recirculated through the valve by-passing the filter
  • Closed - Shuts off the flow from the pump to the filter
  • Winter - For winterizing (SP0714T only) 
  • 1 year warranty 

* The following valves are used with the Hayward Pro Series Top-Mount Sand Filters. SP0704T Valve is only used with filter S144T Only.

I have a SM 2506 T sand filter. The existing plumbing is for 2 inches. What top mount valves would be compatible with the Hayward SM2506T sand filter. I would prefer getting valve with 2 inches plumbing ports

A     Answered on 6/20/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello- The only valve I see listed for the SM2506T is the Replacement Valve for Hayward SP0714T - PL0714 which is 1.5".

?     Asked on 6/8/2018 by Mark

my SM 2506T sand filter has 2" plumbing connected to a Hayward SP 71 top valve. Will a hayward valve with 1.5" ports work ? Do couplings exist to go from 2" to 1.5" ?

A     Answered on 6/8/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mark. The SandMaster Filter Series Manual list Part # SP0714TC, which is the Canadian version of the SP0714T valve. This SP071621 is not listed as a being compatible. You will need an adapter with a 1-1/2" MPT x 2" Slip.

A     Answered on 6/5/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mike C. This valve will NOT fit the SW256T, you will need model # SP0714T (OEM) or PL0714

I Have a Hayward GM-245 sand filter with a SP714T multiport valve. Will this work as a replacement for that valve? I want to replace my old single speed pump with a VS pump and replace all the plumbing with 2" PVC, plus my current SP714T is leaking so I figure this would be a good time to replace it. If not, are there any other 2" models that I could replace the SP714T with?

A     Answered on 4/13/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jon. Unfortunately, this SP071621 valve will not fit the GM-245 filter. You will have to replace the entire filter with one that has a 2" MPV like the S270T2

My pump and heater are 2", the filter is 1 1/2". Will this be a problem with flow restriction?

A     Answered on 1/22/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mick. It 's not going be an issue if the filter can handle the flow rate of the pump.

Can I use this valve to replace an SP0714T with 1.5" fittings. Our pump is 2" and I'd like to avoid the reduction if possible.

A     Answered on 8/19/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello Richard, Yes you can swap the SP0714T to the SP071621, but the questions would be are you using adaptors to fit into your 2" lines from your SP0714T? Just make sure you have 2" all the way around to make sure this will work for you.

I have an Hayward Vari-flo xl Valve (75 pgm/284 lpm) filter and I have a leak at the pressure gauge. Do I have to have a specific pressure gauge or will any work? I guess that's my problem since its leaking from it

A     Answered on 7/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The standard 1/4" NPT Back Mount (102D-204D) or Bottom Mount (101D-204D) pressure gauge can be used with this valve.

Can we get this valve (Hayward Var-flow sp071621) to replace ours. The old conections are straight up and down, will this pose a problem ?

A     Answered on 6/4/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Jill, If you can provide us with the manufacturer and model of the filter you have we can confirm if the valve will replace the one that you have.

I need parts for my filter valve. When I look at the filter parts breakdown, it gives me different choices. How do I know which one is the one I need?

A     Answered on 1/31/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

In order to locate the correct parts we will need to know the model number of the filter valve. Two identical filters can have two different valves. Typically the valve model will be located on the label of the valve. If there is no model number on the valve, you can try to see if there are any part numbers on the valve itself. Once you've located you valve model you can check out our >Filter Valve Parts.

How do I bleed air for a top mounted Hayward multiport valve? They have no air bleeder valve.

A     Answered on 1/23/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hayward TOP mounted multiport valves do not require an air bleeder valve. They self purge air in the system through the return lines.
