I have the Hayward 6 position vari flo on my Triton DE filter. I need to replace the valve. It appears the original install required them to plump the valve so the Hayward would fit the filter it appears to be I think 8 inch on center to the filter side mount. Help
Could you attach some pictures of what you have so I can see what you are working with so I can recommend the correct valve for you?
Will this work with a Stainless Steel PacFab Nautilus NS-48?
Hello, Victor. No, the correct replacement valve is the Valve,sm W/plumbing 1 1/2" P.f. D.e. (sm1-pp2) or the Valve, Sm W/plumbing 2" P.f. D.e. (sm2-pp2) depending on your plumbing size. Please click here to view all part available for the Pac Fab Nautilus Stainless D.E.
Will this valve fit an FNSP 60 filter? All the plumbing is 1-1/2", but the filter ports look larger.

My multi port valve is leaking, and I think I need to replace the spider gasket. What is the part # for the spider gasket for this valve? Thanks!
Hi Rob, the spider gasket for this valve, 261177, is p# 4600-1104.
I am looking for the top part of a valve. It is the part that has the different options on it like backwash and rinse. It is for a Pentair 8 position multi-port valve and has a label # 96734200.
The top lid part number for your valve is part number 4659-25d and the handle is 4659-21c. These do not come together pre assembled unfortunately.
So, maybe. I only need to change the top of the valve instead the whole valve.. Do you have the top of the 261177 Multiport? If yes, please stated price & shipping conditions to Puerto Rico.
Will this valve fit the Nautilus NS-36 stainless steel filter?
Hi Antonio, Yes this multiport valve does work on the Nautilus NS-36 stainless steel filter.
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.
