I have a Hayward pro series sand filter model no s244s with a six position valve. The valve needs to be replaced or repaired . The label on the valve with the model # have wore off, not sure if this is the correct valve. Please advise

Hi James, You will need to take a look to see if the plumbing going into the valve is 1-1/2" or 2" there should be some digital writing on the white pvc pipe indicating your pipe size. The replacement valve for 1-1/2" pvc is part number SP0710X62. The valve for 2" pvc is SP0715X62.

I have a triton tr60 sand filter with a hayward vari flow valve model 710. It seems to wear out prematurely the spider gasket and is hard to turn. I was thinking I should replace this assembly. Maybe the coil spring and other parts are worn to help facilitate this problem. Am I thinking right or do I not know how to put a simple looking gasket in correctly? PS We bought house in 1992 and it was here then..Also if needed , do I have the correct one in this diagram?

Hi Greg, I think you are on the exact path here with replacing the handle assembly. This would give you the complete new top half of the valve. You may want to also purchase the Hayward 710 Cover O-ring shown as Key #6 in the 710 Valve Parts Diagram as this o-ring is not included in the cover assembly. Based on the information you provided this would be the correct cover assembly for your valve.

Please confirm that this kit assembly for the top half of this valve does include the Spider gasket.

This assembly does not include the spider gasket.

We have a Hayward multiparty valve model 710, 75 GPM, 50 psi. Is this the correct key, cover and handle assembly replacement?

Hi Yolanda, The Key,Cover, & Handle Assy. 1 1/2" Black (SPX0710XBA17) will be the correct the replacement assembly for your Hayward SP710 Valve.

Leaking backflush

Written on 6/5/2021 by Guest

I removed the assembly of the backflush and replaced it with the new one. It was not too difficult to do. After I replaced the assembly it still was leaking. Had to find the reason and it is the whole black housing. Just received it in yesterday. Looking to put it in today.

Were these instructions helpful?
