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.

Is this the replacement top assembly for the SM10-2 D.E.?

A  Answered on 8/25/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Pat, The top assembly will fit however the filter and backwash positions will not be in the same place (reversed).

Will this replace the key and handle assembly for a SM10-AO and if so what is the Part number for the spider gasket?

A  Answered on 5/25/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Yes this Valve Top Assembly does work on the SM10-AO and here is the Spider Gasket

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?

Hi Laurie, You have the O.E.M. valve, this is an aftermarket replacement that will fit the SM-10-3 valve. The Top Valve Assy, 1 1/2" - 270068 is the direct replacement

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.

1 to 2 hrs

Tools Needed

Screwdriver, Something to scrape the spider gasket frame.

Too assembly valve was 24 years old and label was illedgeable.

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.

Were these instructions helpful?
