I have mulitport valve P/N 262506. This is my 2nd valve in less than a year. Actually it is my 3rd. I bought the sand filter 2 years ago that came with this valve. The valve leaked at the intake but the filter was damaged as well and got a new filter. That valve also leaked at the intake. Anyway, 3rd valve now and plumbed in as instructed. One layer of thread tape on the 1.5 threaded male coupling. It leaks. What gives? I fear another half turn will crack it.
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/16/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Franklin. You do not have to do another half turn, a quarter turn could do the trick. if not, you may want to check the water pressure or flow, it could be more than the unit can handle.

I have a Tagelus sand filter with a top mounted valve. P/N is 272526 is the 262506 a replacement valve for the 272526? How much sand does my filter hold? P/N 010511.

My Sand Dollar Top Mount's (rear mount) pressure gauge is registering 23 lbs while running. I backflushed and rinsed. The water flow is good in and out and the the pump is staying primed. I did notice the gauge only goes down to 8 lbs when the power is completely off. Shouldn't it go to zero and does this tell me my gauge is bad. Thank You !

A  Answered on 6/3/2019 by Industry Professional

That would be an indication the gauge has dies and would need to be replaced. We do stock the replacement gauge part number 190059

I have a Pentair 272526 valve. When I put the bleeder back in and turn the filter on water came rushing out of the intake hole where the bleeder is inserted. Do I need a bleeder or o ring? Thank you any help would be appreciated.

To be on the safe side we would suggest the Air Bleeder w/ O-Ring in this kit you get both the bleeder and o-ring. Either could be the culprit and it really hard to determine which one it is.

I have a Pentair valve 272526 (replacement 262506). There is a slow water drip at the white pipe fitting that is mounted at the outgoing water (return to pool) flow port on the black valve head. Is this a removable / replaceable part? Is it glued in or can be unscrewed and pipe tape resealed? Thank you.

I don't know of a white part on this unit, send photo please all ports are threaded. Click the reply link below to add your photos.
 Reply

  • Commented on 5/21/2019 by Product Owner

    The installer did not use a locking nut with the outgoing floe port. They installed an adapter which fit inside for the dimension of the opening itself (inner diamond). So the leak is dripping from the fitting into the port. Is it possible to cut off the adapter flush to the port opening and then use a properly sized adapter with a locking nut onto the threads of the port? See photo.

     Reply

    • Commented on 5/21/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

      Hi Henry, The installer should not have glued the adapter into the internal threads of the valve, can you check to see if you can unscrew the adapter from the valve? If so then you could use a standard 1.5" male adapter, wrap the male side with Teflon tape and screw into the valve the other side of the male adapter you would slip and glue your 1.5" pipe into. I think you will have a hard time finding an adapter nut that will screw onto the external threads of the valve ports.
       Reply

      • Commented on 5/21/2019 by Product Owner

        I had unsuccessfully tried to remove the glued fitting from the valve port. It is a slow drip, is there any topical sealant or tape short of complete head replacement?
         Reply

        • Commented on 5/21/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

          Hi Henry, unfortunately, there is nothing that we are aware as far as sealant goes. You would need to replace the complete valve with the O.E.M Pentair 262506 Valve or the Praher After Market Valve for the 262506 If the drip is small enough then you might be able to creative with some sort of sealant to try and stop the leak but in my experience this is only a temporary fix.

 Reply

A  Answered on 5/13/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Kelly, For the Sta-Rite Waterford T210WF sand filter you will require the Pentair 261186 Replacement Valve most likely you had the WC112-148 valve which was discontinued and replaced by the 261186 valve. In this scenario where you are replacing a WC112-148 valve then you will have some minor replumbing as the plumbing port locations on the new valve are not in the same spot as the old valve.

I have this valve and the outlet was plumbed with a threaded male 1.5" connector to 2" pvc. The connector broke off right at the outlet of the valve such that there isn't enough material to be able to un-thread the connector. I see that outlet is also outside threaded for a half union. What part do I need to connect a half union to the valve going to 2" PVC on the outlet?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/14/2019 by Industry Professional

Would recommend using 1-1/2" x 2" threaded adapter part # 89-402-1126. This will thread onto the 1-1/2" mpt of the valve & leave a 2" mpt connection that you can easily thread a standard 2" union on to.
 Reply

  • Commented on 5/19/2019 by Product Owner

    The outside threaded MPT on the valve is 2" so it doesn't seem that this would be the right part. The inside threading of the valve is 1.5" which is where the 1.5" MPT connector broke off.

Hi, Bryan. If air is getting into the line when the pump is off, then you should replace the Top Valve Assembly - 272531 or when the pump is running, the issue is on the suction side. Check out our How to Identify and Correct Air Leaks guide for more info.

 Reply

A  Answered on 5/26/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Keith, the part # you supplied is the part # for the label and that label is used on quite a few of the Pentair valves. If you have the Tagelus you will first need to determine if you have 1.5" plumbing or 2" plumbing going into the valve, once you determine this then you will need to determine if you have a screw on valve or a clamp on valve. Once you determine this then you can select your appropriate valve here on the Tagelus Parts Page by looking at the valves at the top of page.

I need to order a new top mount valve and it looks like the newer version has male threads to connect the hose from the pump. Will I still need the union male end to make that connection?

Hi Mike, You will not need the adapter if you replace your existing valve with this valve.

I have a Tagelus TA60D sand filter and need to replace the six position clamp style 1-1/2" valve (262506). Does this valve, as supplied by you, include the top valve body o-ring (272541), the valve adapter o-ring (154493), pressure gauge (190059) or similar, sight glass w/ vacuum protector (272550), and sight glass gasket (271106). I am asking this so I can order everything needed on one order. I am a returning customer (Speck S90-11, order # 085012). Thank You

Hi John, The only parts that will not be included with this valve are the valve adapter o-ring (154493) and the sight glass w/ vacuum protector (272550) . So you should be all set with the 262506 valve, thanks so much for your continued business.

Is there a total rebuild kit for this. What are the parts that would be needed. Mine is SEVERAL years old and leaks from several points. The lever is hard to turn and does not change the flow properly. I hate to replace the entire unit if it can be rebuilt

Hi Dave, The Valve Top Assembly  (272531) is considered a rebuild kit for this valve.

Hi Jack, The spider gasket is not sold separately, you will have to purchase the Diverter, Valve w/ Gasket (272512) if the gasket is bad.

Have a Tagelus TA60D with 6 way valve P/N 272523 on top, clamp on style. On "filter" setting it leaks out of the backwash pipe. I would like to repair the 6 way valve but cannot find parts. If it cannot be repaired, then which is the correct replacement valve? I took the top part of the valve off...it has a "spider" gasket on it that is damaged. Bottom of valve has a "pole/extensioin" in center that appears to have broken off about one inch up. What parts OR valve will replace repair this one?
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/11/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

The diverter with spider gasket seems to be what you are referring to being part number 4600-2512 which is key #9 on the model 272523 valve parts diagram.

I have a Tagelus-Dynamo model TA40 Will this modle fit mine It's a 24 round
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

You will need to look at the Tagelus Valve Options at the Top of This Page. First you will need to determine if your valve is clamp on or screw on, if it is clamp on then your choice would be this valve. If you have a screw on valve you would then need to determine if your filter is from prior to Nov. 1991 or after Nov. 1991. You can also determine this based on if you have V Threads on the Valve or Buttress Threads on the valve.

How do I bleed air with a Tagelus multiport valve?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/23/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Tagelus multiport valves before 1993 did not have an air bleeder valve and had to self-purge the air through the return lines. If your valve is 1993 or after, there is an air bleeder valve towards the bottom of the valve next to the lower port - about the size of a quarter. Turn knob counter-clockwise to release air.

6 Position Valve was leaking at handle. Replacement valve was a near match.

Written on 7/24/2019 by Guest

Removed clamp that holds valve in place. Wiggle it until old valve came free. Lubed all connecting fittings and o-ring on new valve, positioned the valve, and pushed firmly into place.

You can tell when you have valve in place because the clamp will not fit until you have new valve positioned properly. Tighten clamp with screws provided making sure you get nuts in recess on clamp. Reconnected the plumbing with unions removed from the old valve. Open vent turn pump on and close vent. Check for leaks. Job is now complete..
