Hayward Vari-Flo XL multiport control valve, made of our exclusive PermaGlass XL™ material and engineered for maximum flow at lower pressure drops will be the choice in multiport valves. It will retrofit any filter that has an SP071113 valve that needs replacement and upgrading.
All Vari-Flo control valves feature an easy-to-use lever action handle that lets you "dial" up to six valve/filter functions: filter, backwash, waste, rinse, closed or recirculate. Complete with an integral sight glass that lets you see when the backwashing cycle is completed, our wide selection of valve configurations allows you to match the right Vari-Flo valve to the proper application; residential, commercial, top-mount or side mount.

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.
Whenever I move this handle on valve spo715xr50 which way do I rotate it?
Whenever you are moving the handle on this or other vari-flo valves you first must always make sure that the pump is off, then rotate the handle clockwise until it arrives in the position that you need. Continue this process when using the valve.
I broke the handle on my valve. I am ordering a replacement. Is there any way to adjust the setting while I wait for it to arrive?
Hi, Unfortunately without a handle there is no other way to change the valve position.
The handle on the valve broke. What are the parts I need to replace? Is replacing only the handle and the plastic washer just underneath the handle sufficient or I should also replace the top half of the valve assembly?
Hi Mike, I would recommend replace the Handle (SPX0715F), Non-Metallic Bearing (SPX0710Z16) and the O-ring w/ Teflon Seal. If the o-rings and spider gasket have not been replaced lately I would recommend getting the SP715 Multi Port Valve Tune Up Kit (NO SPRING).
Where can I find a replacement sticker just like on this part? PART#SP0715XR50 I need one with the Filter cycle on the bottom and the backwash on the top.. any and all help is very appreciated.
Hi Kathy, You would need this Hayward Vari-Flo Valve Label we also put together a Guide on How to Backwash a Pool Filter with No Label which you may find helpful.

Hacksaw and outdoor pvc cement.
Was a simple install. Removed the two way valve. Bought some pvc from the local hardware store and cut some new connections for the new valve.
The multivalve was plug and play into the filter and just connected the new pvc parts. Works great and the new valve has a window so I can see the water being expelled during backwash. Once I see clean water I know I am done. Much better than the original two way valve. Delivery was earlier than expected when ordering. All in all a pretty simple diy project.
(5 out of 5 stars) It's a valve - yay :P

IT's a valve - it's hard to get excited as long as it works. I didn't do a lot of homework and probably could have gotten the slide valve as it would have had less bends for my setup, but this installed with minimal hassle, and like the threaded 2-inch ports. It's easy to replumb if required, and works well with the filter.

Pros: same connections as valve with previous generation DE filter
Cons: poor design on the 2" connections going to pump and pool When using 2" inch piping one must be cautious of where to place a unions else there is interference
This valve with 2" ports was bundled with the 48 sq ft DE filter also with 2" connections but a 1 1/2 HP super pump with 1 1/2 connections The 1 1/2 " pump seems like it would be a bottleneck for maintaining the high volume through the remainder of the 2" connectiond
