Have a TA60D clamp filter & need to replace multiport. Filter model #145241 & 2005 filter with the first 4 numbers in serial # being 0105. Is this correct multiport for that model. What also all comes w/ valve? Does it comes with gauge, sight glass, O-Ring that goes on the bottom of valve? Are all of those assembly items included? (and/or more?) What type of sight glass is included w/ this valve? They have vacuum valves with that black rubber gasket (which I'd want) & non-vac styles. Thanks

#### A  Answered on 8/5/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Bill, This would be the correct valve. The valve comes with a pressure gauge, sight glass and plastic clamp assembly. The sight glass that comes with the valve is a standard one.

I have a Sparco Hi Rate Sand Filter. Numbers on the Multiport Valve read P/N 272526 VLV SD 19/22 SELL=262506. It is leaking when filtering at the waste port. What is your recommendation to correct this problem. Do you have parts available to fix this problem?

#### A  Answered on 6/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Edward. It sounds like you have a bad diverter gasket. To resolve this is you can choose one of these three options. 1) Replace the Valve Diverter w/ Gasket - 272512, 2) Replace the Valve Top Assy - 272531, or 3) Replace the complete 1 1/2" Top Mount Valve Flanged - 262506.

I have a Tagelus-Dynamo model TA40 Will this modle fit mine It's a 24 round

#### A  Answered on 5/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

You will need to look at the Tagelus Valve Options at the Top of This Page. First you will need to determine if your valve is clamp on or screw on, if it is clamp on then your choice would be this valve. If you have a screw on valve you would then need to determine if your filter is from prior to Nov. 1991 or after Nov. 1991. You can also determine this based on if you have V Threads on the Valve or Buttress Threads on the valve.

How do I bleed air with a Tagelus multiport valve?

#### A  Answered on 1/23/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Tagelus multiport valves before 1993 did not have an air bleeder valve and had to self-purge the air through the return lines. If your valve is 1993 or after, there is an air bleeder valve towards the bottom of the valve next to the lower port - about the size of a quarter. Turn knob counter-clockwise to release air.

Removed clamp that holds valve in place. Wiggle it until old valve came free. Lubed all connecting fittings and o-ring on new valve, positioned the valve, and pushed firmly into place.

You can tell when you have valve in place because the clamp will not fit until you have new valve positioned properly. Tighten clamp with screws provided making sure you get nuts in recess on clamp. Reconnected the plumbing with unions removed from the old valve. Open vent turn pump on and close vent. Check for leaks. Job is now complete..
