LOOK:  Generic Hayward Valve 2" for DE - 27516-204-000  SAVE$


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?

A  Answered on 1/31/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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?

A  Answered on 9/15/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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?

A  Answered on 9/18/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

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).

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.
