Do you have this valve currently in stock? It appears mine has failed, and my pool maintenance company has said that this valve may be difficult to find. I have an S-240 sand filter. Thanks!

A  Answered on 4/9/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

This part number 26-253-1225 side mount multiport valve has ports that you can hard plumb to a filter per its specifications. If you need a valve complete with the attachments ready to be mounted to your filter then we will need the specific filter make and model to confirm for you. If you cannot locate that information please send us an image of the filter and current valve to upload@inyopools.com so we can review and advise.

Need multiport valve got the sp-710x62 going into sand filter was 1in to wide need to know correct part

A  Answered on 5/21/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Steve. The correct replacement valve will be the SP0710X62

?     Asked on 8/15/2017by Mark

can you open the VARI FLO MULTI VALVE and is there a rubber gasket inside or how can you check to see if it is flowing correctly and operating correctly. The reason I am asking is that I don't see any water flowing through the glass cup on the side of the Multiport Valve. I might have a blockage. Please reply

A  Answered on 8/18/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

There would only be water flowing through that glass sight glass when the valve is in the waste, backwash or rinse cycle. As long as water is flowing back to the pool when in the filter, and water is being discharged when in the first three settings I mentioned then it will be functioning correctly. 

?     Asked on 6/14/2017by Chris

Hello, I was reading your Q&A on multiport valves for Hayward Sand Filters. Found one similar to mine, but appears I need to provide you info. I have the multiport valve SP710XA-13. Your listings do not indicate a replacement for this. The Filter Tank is a Hayward S200 series, S/N 4879 and in small print is says s200x on the side of label. Model identified on the label is S200 High Flow Series. Installed in 2002. Cannot find any ID markings on it. Center to center = 5", Diam. pipes = 2"

A  Answered on 6/15/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Chris, Since your label says you have a Hayward S200 filter then this is the correct replacement valve for you as this is the only valve that has been used on the S200.

?     Asked on 6/25/2016by Gary

Does this valve fit the s-240 manufactured in the late 80s

A  Answered on 6/26/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Gary, This will fit the S240 filters regardless of age. Here is a breakdown of the filter: http://www.inyopools.com/pool_parts_hayward_s_200_s_240_sand_filter.aspx

?     Asked on 5/30/2016by Eddie Henderson

Is the SPX0710x32 and the SP0710x62 valve interchangeable with the Hayward S200 sand filter.

A  Answered on 6/3/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Eddie, Only the SPX0710X32 valve will work with the S-200 sand filter.

What is the center to center spacing of the fittings that go in and out of the valve to the sand filter. Is that spacing the same for either size valve.

A  Answered on 5/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The center-to-center spacing is 5" for both the 1.5" and 2" valve.

My vavle says sp 710x32 so does the spx 710x32 fit my filter also?

A  Answered on 4/8/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

As long as your model number is listed in the alternate part numbers listed in the item's details then this would be a replacement valve. It looks as if you may be missing a "SP' of some sorts in front of this model number. 

?     Asked on 8/18/2015by David

Will this Vari Flo Multiport Valve 1.5 work on my S240 sand filter? How can I tell if I need a 1and 1/2 inch or a 2 inch. It holds 300lbs of sand. Since it was installed in 1992, I can not find any numbers on it. If I just replaced the top part, which part do I need? Thanks

A  Answered on 8/18/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes this valve does work on the model S240 filter. You would need to measure the diameter of the pvc glued to the valve itself to decipher whether it is a 1.5 inch or 2 inch. These should be only 1.5 inch though. Sometimes the pvc is labeled as well with this information. The lid for the valve would be key number 20 on this parts diagram. One is for the black and one is for the white lid/top.

I need to replace my Hayward side mounted multi port valve. The only number I can find is SP710XA-13. I purchased a 710 series valve but the lower pipe going into the filter is about 1" too high. I can't seem to match this model # that is on the existing valve. Any thoughts?

A  Answered on 6/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Hello, Hayward makes a few different side mount valves. We will need to know the model number on your filter tank.

?     Asked on 5/24/2015by charlie

I have an old s-200 filter with a valve part no.sp-710-32. The pump and return openings are the same size facing the same way, straight back. Pictures of the replacement show two opening configurations.One which are the same (like mine) and another which shows two different sizes and which face in two different directions. Which configuration does the replacement have?

A  Answered on 5/24/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Charlie, The images we have on the Generic Version of the S200 Valve shows the port configuration better. The port configuration on the Hayward original would be the same as shown on the images for the S200 generic valve, I hope this helps.

?     Asked on 5/20/2015by Jason

I have a Pac Fab SP-710 sand 1 1/2" 6 position valve that needs replaced is this the correct one. It's on a Pac Fab super Flo sand filter and is a side mount.

A  Answered on 5/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Jason, For the older Pac Fab filters which used the Hayward SP-710 valve then the proper valve replacement would be the Pentair 261173 Valve.

?     Asked on 5/15/2015by Inyo Visitor

will this fit sand filter model no. s244s

A  Answered on 5/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

No, This valve can not be used with the Hayward Sand Filter model S244S. The correct valve for your Hayward Sand Filter model S244S will be SP0710X62 1.5" and SP0715X62 2".

?     Asked on 5/13/2015by Inyo Visitor

Will this multiport valve support salt water without breakdown ?

A  Answered on 5/13/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes this valve can accomodate salt water at the levels of a traditional saltwater pool which is 3,000 - 4,000 PPM of salt, however the pump would not withstand ocean water which has a much higher concentration of salt more in the range of 50,000 PPM of salt.

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 filtersĀ 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.

?     Asked on 1/24/2012by Guest

I have a Hayward sand filter with a SP710 multiport valve. Do I need the SPX710X32 or the SPX710XR50?

A  Answered on 1/24/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Hayward >SPX710XR50 is a valve that is only used on Hayward D.E. filters. If you have a Hayward sand filter you would either need a >SPX710X32 (Model S200 filter)) or a > >SPX710X62 (Pro SeriesĀ Models).
