I need to know if the top is the inlet to the sand filter and the bottom is the outlet. I already ordered one and the inlet and outlet where reversed .
Hi, Dorsey. The upper left port is the inlet which connects to the pump and the bottom right port is the return.
Have a 08 Purex Triton 2 TR-60 filter multi valve Purjex Triton SM10-3 sand have 1 1/2" ports (7.5" center filter side) would you provide correct part # to replace the SM-3 valve.
Hi Rick, The 1.5" Threaded Multiport Valve for Sand and D.E or the Pentair Multiport Valve Kit 1 1/2" Generic Threaded (SM1-PP3) would be the correct replacements for your SM10-3 Valve.
I HAVE A PUREX TRITON 6 POS. MULTI PORT VALVE SM10-2D.E.DO YOU HAVE THIS VALVE
Jim, There are a few different variations of this valve depending on your filter tank model. What is the model of your filter tank?
My Triton sand filter is 27 years old. Cannot read model #. My valve is a PacFab model with threaded 1 1/2 connections. I have 6 position lever. Centers for the filter are 7 1/2 inches. Would I use a Pentair 1.5 threaded valve #261173 for a replacement? Filter is 24" diameter. Thanks
Hi Don, The 261173 would not be the correct valve. You would need the 7-1/2" Center to Center Valve for the Pac-Fab Triton 261050.
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?
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.
(5 out of 5 stars) great product

This multiport valve was easy to install. It was a very good price considering pool dealers locally wanted to charge anywhere from $140-$160. It is an almost perfect match to our old multiport valve that has lasted 18 years.
