When replacing a Pentair Head Valve 272531 OPT 4600-2531 what o rings and gaskets are required? Please tell me the o ring size I need and Spider Gasket size if one is required
Thanks. I appreciate that. Will a bad spider gasket on this top valve assembly cause the water to leak into the backwash sight glass. My pressure has been rising up over 20 psi several times in the past 2 or 3 day. And my pump basket is losing water also.
Sometimes pool pumps loose prime due to a priming issue or due to the filter needing to be cleaned or replaced as the pool is filtering enough dirt and debris. Please click here to view our Pool Pump Priming guide that may assist.
Good morning. I have a diverter p/n 27-2512. What is the replacement diverter gasket part number?
Can you tell me the part # for the spider gasket on this specific diverter.
Hi my top valve was installed in 2012 and has the numbers 27-2512 and 27-2502 211 on it my filter numbers are Serial # 05183131203040 and another number below a bar code is 48504040. Is this top valve compatible with my filter?
I have an older 1.5" Pac Fab valve rated 50 psi, 75 gpm, instruction label # 27-1140, 6 mounting holes, going clockwise starting from the top is filter, waste, closed, blanked, recirc and rinse. Bottom stamp says made in canada. The labels with the part number are all worn off. I'm looking for a top assembly and a spider gasket, the current assembly won't lift and displaces the gasket when turning. is this the correct top assembly and what spider gasket do i need? Thanks in advance!
My filter head has a part # of 272526, I broke the handle that goes from - filter to backwash, ect, is part # 282531 the correct replacement part?
My valve is leaking though wastewater when pump is running in filter position. Will this fix problem or do I need whole assembly?
Hello- Assuming this is the correct part for you valve you would have two options. The problem with your valve is a bad spider gasket. On this model you would have the choice of just replacing the Diverter, Valve W/gasket (272512) or replacing the entire Top Assembly, Valve (272531).
I need just the decal for this valve, is ti available? The sun and weather is destroying mine?
R East, You can find the label for the 272531 here: http://www.inyopools.com/Products7/07501352020369.htm
Will this part fit my valve part #272523?
I have leakage where valve meets valve body. I inspected the O ring and it looked fine. I went to the local pool store and picked up a new O ring anyway; however, when installed I still have leaking. I finally got aggressive and really tightened the screws down to no success. Do you think replacing the entire top assembly value will solve the leaking?
Hi JB, Yes I do believe that by replacing the entire valve assembly that this would stop the leaking unless the leaking is coming from a crack in the filter tank.
(5 out of 5 stars) Solved My Leak Problem

Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: not cheap.
Replacing the valve top assembly completely solved my leakage to waste port problem. Installing a new one takes only a few minutes and common tools. If I had known more about pools I would have changed to valve top assembly several summers ago.
(4 out of 5 stars) manufacturing changes to valve housing
Reviewed By: Old pool owner from Ontario , Canada ()
Pros: finally working
Cons: new parts way different from old
I thought the new top assembly would just drop into the old bottom assembly...I was wrong... the old one was 18 yrs old...the new one had updates that resulted in having to reuse the old top assembly housing and reinstall the valve into it ... a bit of a challenge but it was successfully reassembled ...should have just ordered the diverter and associated parts
