I need the top valve assy for SM-20-2. What part number do I need?
I need to know if this is the right part, my handle assembly broke and I need to replace. Picture attached.
I have a Purex Triton SM10-3 SAND multi-port valve on my 1998 sand filter and it is getting very hard to operate. It is working and not leaking but has gotten very hard to switch from filter to backwash, etc. I see the Pentair 270068 top assembly should fit (right?) but the spider and O ring are not included so my question is would a new spider gasket make it easier to turn? Or is the whole top assembly needed to make it easier to turn?
Hi Nexsen, yes the most common reason for a multiport valve to have difficulty turning is the spider gasket. However, if it getting older then it also a good idea to consider replacing that entire top valve assembly which you have correctly cross-referenced as well. For the SM10-3 multiport valve with sand filter, the Pentair top assembly 270068 is correct.
Thanks. In case it helps someone else I replaced the top assembly and at first installed the star gasket without gluing it until I could get the right kind of adhesive (3M 4799). I thought it might leak a "little" unglued but it lost almost 10,000 gallons overnight! That's essentially like leaving it in backwash since my pump runs at 29,000 gallons per day. I am AMAZED and still don't see how that could be possible but it did happen. After gluing it does not leak at all.

I am using E-50-S1 top Assembly to replace the top assembly on my SM10-2D.E valve. The handle was badly sticking when I closed last year.
I also bought 4600-1104 the diverter gasket.
How critical is it to replace this gasket if it looks OK? As I hear it is tedious to scrap it out?
Lastly if I do replace it do I have to lub it?
Hi Ronald, if the spider gasket is in good condition then you do not necessarily need to replace it and you do not need to lubricate it either. Here is a general guide that we put together called "How to Replace a Spider Gasket on a Multiport Valve" that may also assist.
I bought the replacement valve assembly SM10-2 (261177). from you. I only need the valve as the handle was sticking badly and was getting DEA back into the pool. So I have removed it from your Assembly to use. I also bought the gasket 4600-1104 from you. (271104). My current valve and gasket are about 8 years old. Do I need to replace the gasket? If it looks OK? Can I just put the new valve in? Haw critical is the 401 lock tight?
Hi Ronald, if you are not leaking any water out of the waste port and the spider gasket seems to be in good condition then you should not need to replace it. However, if you are already there then maybe at least consider replacing it. Loctite or even RTV silicone are important to use as they hold the gasket in place when rotating the rotor within the valve.
will this part fit my Pentair SM10-3 Sand apparatus?
I have an older pac-fab model SM10-2D.E with a Nautilus NS 48 DE filter. Will the E-50-S1 top valve work, and what o-rings/gaskets should I order
Hi Joe, Yes this E-50-S1 top Assembly will replace the top assembly on your SM10-2D.E valve.
I have a Pentair 27-1140 date 8/98. Will this fit and what gaskets should I get with it.
I also have the 27-1140 which states 50psi operating pressure with 75gmp flow. This part E-50-S1 shows 60gpm. Will this valve top restrict flow? IF there is a better valve top for the 27-1140, what is the o ring?
I have a SM10-3 sand valve and have seen two part numbers (4600-1102 and 4600-0068) listed in the Q&A as replacements.If both are correct, what are the differences? Also, do these valves come with gaskets,washers and decals?
Hi, Evan. The Top Valve Assemblies - 4600-1102 is a generic option, the cover o-ring - 252 is not included and 4600-0068 is an OEM option with decals and cover o-ring. The Diverter Gasket - 271104 (OEM) or G-416 (Generic) will have to be purchased separately using either Top Valve Assemblies.
WILL THIS FIT ON MY SM10-2DE FILTER
mine has a model # of sm-10 . is this one the same, the handle is covering the #
Hi, is this replacement for part number pentair tm12-a multiport key valve? And would I need new spider gasket and o-rings? Thanks
Okay - Have the Pentair SM10-2D.E. From what you have posted it appears as though the replacement is labeled differently than what my current labels are. Here is the stupid question. If I want to operate with the new top, do I assume the labeling is correct and use it the way it is labeled or do I scribble it out and relabel it to match what is currently on the unit that I am using? Please advise. THX Mel
Hi, does this assembly replace a Pentair SM10-3 sand, 50 psi, 75 gpm top assy valve? The only other number I see is 27-1140. Your picture shows the same number of mounting screws (6) and all the valve position location match (rinse, filter, waste, etc), however my assembly does not have a "winterize" position.
I can provide a picture of my old assy if that helps.
Hello Ken- The Top Assy., Valve 1 1/2" Black-with Label (e-50-s1b) part # 4600-1102 will be the correct part for your SM10-3.
will PRAHER VALVE top p/n e-50-s1 fit & match Pentair valve ? waiting to order rightnow... thanks
Hi, Bob. This top assy can be used with selected Pentair valves. If you can provide us with the model number of the valve I can confirm if this assembly is compatible.
My current valve says "75 GPM" this new one says "60 GPM". If this is the correct part for SM-10-3 why is this different and will it slow my circulation down in the pool?
Will this replace the key and handle assembly for a SM10-AO and if so what is the Part number for the spider gasket?
I have a Pentair SM10-3 valve that has been leaking. I replaced the spider gasket and spring but it's still leaking. Before I replace the whole top should I try something else or just buy the top? Will this top assembly fit my valve body?
Hello Norm - I would recommend replacing the entire top assembly. This will correct you problem. The 4600-1102 is the correct top assembly for the SM10-3.
1 to 2 hrs
Screwdriver, Something to scrape the spider gasket frame.
While replacing top valve assembly was pretty straight forward I was uncertain about whether or not draining some water from the filter was necessary. It was not necessary and replacement was easy with the exception of replacing the spider gasket. This was the time consumer!! Removing the old spider gasket was very tedious and getting the surface scraped clean took quite a bit of time. Once this was completed the job was easyily accomplished.
(5 out of 5 stars) forgot how good the valve was supposed to work

Pros: smooth operation
Cons: not a good color match
even though the valve was not listed as the replacement it fit perfectly and works like it did when the valve was new

Pros: Product was just like described, easy ordering over phone and representative helpful and professional.
Product was right replacement for my 25 year old Pac-Fab valve. I did have to remove the pin through the handle and rotate it 180 degrees in order to align with my set up. Ordering and delivery was easy and received product in a few days.
