Actually, the correct top valve assembly would be part number 4703-20 that you can view by clicking here

I have a Purex Triton SM10-3 SAND multi-port valve on my 1998 sand filter and it is getting very hard to operate. It is working and not leaking but has gotten very hard to switch from filter to backwash, etc. I see the Pentair 270068 top assembly should fit (right?) but the spider and O ring are not included so my question is would a new spider gasket make it easier to turn? Or is the whole top assembly needed to make it easier to turn?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/28/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Hi Nexsen, yes the most common reason for a multiport valve to have difficulty turning is the spider gasket. However, if it getting older then it also a good idea to consider replacing that entire top valve assembly which you have correctly cross-referenced as well. For the SM10-3 multiport valve with sand filter, the Pentair top assembly 270068 is correct.

    Thanks. In case it helps someone else I replaced the top assembly and at first installed the star gasket without gluing it until I could get the right kind of adhesive (3M 4799). I thought it might leak a "little" unglued but it lost almost 10,000 gallons overnight! That's essentially like leaving it in backwash since my pump runs at 29,000 gallons per day. I am AMAZED and still don't see how that could be possible but it did happen. After gluing it does not leak at all.

I am using E-50-S1 top Assembly to replace the top assembly on my SM10-2D.E valve. The handle was badly sticking when I closed last year. I also bought 4600-1104 the diverter gasket. How critical is it to replace this gasket if it looks OK? As I hear it is tedious to scrap it out? Lastly if I do replace it do I have to lub it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/10/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Ronald, if the spider gasket is in good condition then you do not necessarily need to replace it and you do not need to lubricate it either. Here is a general guide that we put together called "How to Replace a Spider Gasket on a Multiport Valve" that may also assist.

?     Asked on 4/27/2020 by Ronald Mccullough

I bought the replacement valve assembly SM10-2 (261177). from you. I only need the valve as the handle was sticking badly and was getting DEA back into the pool. So I have removed it from your Assembly to use. I also bought the gasket 4600-1104 from you. (271104). My current valve and gasket are about 8 years old. Do I need to replace the gasket? If it looks OK? Can I just put the new valve in? Haw critical is the 401 lock tight?
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/21/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Ronald, if you are not leaking any water out of the waste port and the spider gasket seems to be in good condition then you should not need to replace it. However, if you are already there then maybe at least consider replacing it. Loctite or even RTV silicone are important to use as they hold the gasket in place when rotating the rotor within the valve.

    I also have the 27-1140 which states 50psi operating pressure with 75gmp flow. This part E-50-S1 shows 60gpm. Will this valve top restrict flow? IF there is a better valve top for the 27-1140, what is the o ring?

Hi, Evan. The Top Valve Assemblies - 4600-1102 is a generic option, the cover o-ring - 252 is not included and 4600-0068 is an OEM option with decals and cover o-ring. The Diverter Gasket - 271104 (OEM) or G-416 (Generic) will have to be purchased separately using either Top Valve Assemblies.

Okay - Have the Pentair SM10-2D.E. From what you have posted it appears as though the replacement is labeled differently than what my current labels are. Here is the stupid question. If I want to operate with the new top, do I assume the labeling is correct and use it the way it is labeled or do I scribble it out and relabel it to match what is currently on the unit that I am using? Please advise. THX Mel

Hi, does this assembly replace a Pentair SM10-3 sand, 50 psi, 75 gpm top assy valve? The only other number I see is 27-1140. Your picture shows the same number of mounting screws (6) and all the valve position location match (rinse, filter, waste, etc), however my assembly does not have a "winterize" position. I can provide a picture of my old assy if that helps. Thanks!!

I have a Pentair SM10-3 valve that has been leaking. I replaced the spider gasket and spring but it's still leaking. Before I replace the whole top should I try something else or just buy the top? Will this top assembly fit my valve body?

A  Answered on 1/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Norm - I would recommend replacing the entire top assembly. This will correct you problem. The 4600-1102 is the correct top assembly for the SM10-3.

Difficulty

Est. Repair Time

1 to 2 hrs

Tools Needed

Screwdriver, Something to scrape the spider gasket frame.

Too assembly valve was 24 years old and label was illedgeable.

Written on 7/20/2017 by Guest

While replacing top valve assembly was pretty straight forward I was uncertain about whether or not draining some water from the filter was necessary. It was not necessary and replacement was easy with the exception of replacing the spider gasket. This was the time consumer!! Removing the old spider gasket was very tedious and getting the surface scraped clean took quite a bit of time. Once this was completed the job was easyily accomplished.

Were these instructions helpful?
