MPV SF-S Series 2" - A0553645
I have the Praher SM20-2 filter and it is leaking. Rather than attempt to repair the gasket I just want to replace the entire unit. It looks like the PVC fittings screw into the valve.
1) Does this look like the correct unit to replace what I have?
2) Can you give me brief description of how these couplers screw into the valve? Any cutting or gluing PVC necessary to swap out? Do I need new O rings? Does it come with couplers?
Thanks but what if I have a handy DE filter. One answer below says if I have that this is the correct one. Mine has the piece on the bottom that looks more like this one than the link for the Praher you posted. Thanks
Hi Marc, Could you take a photo of the label on the side of your filter tank and post back to this thread. If you have a Jandy filter then most likely the model # should start with DEV or DEL. Simply click the reply link below to post your photos. Once I get this photo I will be able to make the proper suggestion.
Here are some photos I took of the valve this morning. I notice the leaking is coming from the top center where the valve is and also a small leak out of the top piece (the piece under all the screws). I guess my options would be to replace both the valve gasket and the main gasket at the top or replace entire valve. I do not think the spider gasket is leaking or an issue based on what I've read on your site as far as where the leak is coming from at the top. thanks
Hi Marc, My suggestion would be to replace the entire valve with this A0553645 Valve you could then keep your old valve on hand for parts if ever needed. Were you ever able to find your Jandy filter model # this would be on the Gray Plastic Filter Tank? If your filter says it is a DEL24, DEL36, DEL48 or DEL60 then this is the correct valve. If it says something else then please post that model # back to this thread so I can confirm the proper valve.
Sorry yes this is attached to the Jandy DEL 60 filter
Ok great! This valve works on the Jandy DEL60 but not the Jandy DEV60 so I just wanted to double-check. You should be all set to order this valve.
I have a Jandy DE Filter - all in good working order. But I'm trying to locate the label plate for the top of the valve - it's worn away over the years - (Filer, Waste, Recirc, Backwash) \
I bought a replacement 2" side-mount sm20-2, the connectors to the DEL48 are too big. What type of connectors do I need to get to make this work. It says it is for 2" but the female connectors with the replacement will not fasten to the male connectors already attached to the DEL48. This filter is 10yrs old or more. Any suggestions? PS I was unable to repair the spider gasket I bought from you due to unable to remove the old gasket. So I bought a new valve thinking It is a easier fix.
Hi, Mark. Unfortunately, the SM20-2 valve is not compatible with the Jandy DEL48 valve. The only valve that is compatible is this 2" Valve Kit - A0553645.
Can the internal gasket on a jandy multiport valve (A0553645) be replaced to stop water leaking from the waste line? Part ?
