Why are there two different listings for this valve? Two different prices, so wasn’t sure why? Thanks

A  Answered on 5/21/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

This is just an accidental duplicate listing that will soon be edited and combined.

Is the inlet from the pump threaded? Mine is leaking right there and it looks like the PVC connector is threaded. If so, I can just cut the PVC and replace the threaded section with Teflon tape or equivalent versus replacing the whole multi port valve if it is not threaded and glued in.

A  Answered on 5/23/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, David. The Ports are threaded so you can repair the lead without replacing the valve.

15 min fix. Disconnected 3 pipes from unit. Remove valve with 2 connectors and install new one, literally 2 min. Reconnect 3 pipes with silicon and tighten. Turned it on, checked for leaks and walked away.
