I currently have a Pentair 261177 1 Threaded Multiport 1-1/2 & 2 in. D.E. and Pool Sand Filter, that I use for my D.E. Filter. I am replacing the D.E. Filter with the Triton II TR50 Filter Side Mount 21 Inch Tank - 140249. Will my currenet multiport 261177 be compatible with the new TR50 side mount?
Hi, Eric. The 261177 valve is not compatible with the Triton II TR50 Sand filter. You can use Part # 261173.
need sand filter with 8 inch center to center to fit push pull valve 263078
Hi, Doug. I was unable to locate a complete sand filter that has an 8" centerline. The Triton II filter has a 7-1/2" centerline. You will have to purchase a new filter and slide valve.
How can I tell what model filter I have, it looks like a TR 50
Dale, There should be a label on the filter tank with a model number marked off.
I have a Hayward S-200 sand filter with Hayward side mount valve. Would this filter be a good replacement filter? I plan on reusing the Haywood side valve because it is just a couple of years old. Will it mate up with this tank?
Hi Rick, This Triton II TR50 Sand Filter (140249) will be a good replacement, however the valve will not work with this filter. You will have to use a valve that is specifically for this filter.
is this TR 50 Triton the right substitute for the SuperFlo PF-50 by PAC FAB?
Les,Yes the TR-50 Triton is the suitable choice for replacement for the Superflo PF-50.
When should I change the sand in my filter?
You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
How many pounds of sand does this filter require?
If you are using all sand, it takes 225 lb. You can also use a mix of 50 lb pea gravel and 175 lb sand.
