It looks like this valve will fit my pentair/pac-fab tr60 sand filter. My old directional valve has 1/1/2" piping. Am I correct!!!

Hi Stuart, yes this model multiport valve is compatible with the Pentair Triton II TR60 model sand filter.

My Pentair 1 1/2” multiport valve handle bolt failed. Looking to purchase a new valve kit. I have a Triton II TR-60 with 1 1/2” plumbing. Is your Praher Part # 4611-0 the direct replacement? See photo below.


A  Answered on 4/6/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Linda, Thanks for the photo yes this would be the direct replacement valve for SM-10-3 valve shown in your photo. We have this valve in stock ready to ship!

?     Asked on 5/7/2019by Krista Hudson

This multiport seems to match up to our TR60. It's an SM-10 3 Sand, but it is a 75 GPM and this one displayed is a 60 GPM. Will it work?

A  Answered on 5/9/2019 by Industry Professional

Based on the information would recommend the 261055

A  Answered on 5/9/2019 by Industry Professional

This valve IS used on that model filter. The GPM rating is just a max rating. The GPM or flow rate is dependant on the size of your pump as well. You should be fine with this replacement valve.

?     Asked on 5/1/2019by Kevin Ingold

I HAVE THE SM1 PP3 valve and when in filter mode , water is dripping out of the back wash drain pipe... is there a gasket I should replace in it to prevent the draining while in filter mode?

A  Answered on 5/3/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Kevin. You will need to replace the seals which are all available in the MPV 1.5" Tune Up Kit - APCK1067

?     Asked on 3/13/2019by Chris

I own a pool cleaning business and have never encountered this problem before. I backwashed and rinsed this style multi port valve and it seemed normal. I then tried to put it on recirculate and the water was still coming out of the waste end. Which is weird. Then I put it back on filter mode and it seemed like it never backwashed properly, barely any flow in the pool. Is there any reason why these things happened or is the multi port broken?

A  Answered on 3/20/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Chris. It sounds like the Diverter Gasket - 271104 (OEM), G-416 (Generic) will need to be replaced. We also have the Tune Up Kit - APCK1067 (w/o Spring), or APCK1067S (w/ Spring). 

?     Asked on 5/27/2018by Kathy

hI- I have a Pentair FNS-Plus (FNSP36) and the handle to divert the water no longer works correctly so I am assuming- after all the Q&A's I've read -I need a valve kit. I am looking for a SM10-2d.e. (showing 6 bolts) would this Pentair Multiport Valve Kit 1 1/2" Generic Threaded (SM1-PP3) work? If so - what exactly would I have to order? Thanks in advance for your response.

A  Answered on 5/28/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Kathy. You can either replace the entire valve with this SM1-PP3 valve or rebuild it using the Top Valve Assy - E-50-S1,  Diverter Gasket - 271104 and the Cover O-ring - 271103

I have a Pac-Fab super flow PF-50 sand filter. I want to have a multiport valve installed on it so I can vacum to waste. Currently I have a slide valve that I use to backflush. Will this valve kit work with my sand filter?

A  Answered on 5/21/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes, this valve will work on your model filter as long as you have 1.5-inch plumbing.

I have a PAC-FAB sand filter, model TR60, area is 3.1 sq.ft, flowrate is 60gpm. It has a 2" side-mount PAC-FAB valve identified as SP 710 (if that means anything). I need to replace the valve. What part # do I need?

A  Answered on 8/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Rob. You can use any of the 2" MPV listed on the Pentair Triton 2 Fiberglass Sand Filter part page. The SP710 valve is a 1-1/2" valve and the SP0715ALL is the 2" valve.

A  Answered on 7/23/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Bill. This valve will not replace the SM1-HP3 valve, you will need model # SM1-HP3.

A  Answered on 2/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Phil. The Pentair- SM1-PP3 can be used with the TR60 Sand filter.

?     Asked on 12/22/2016by Mark

This is listed under DE filters, but it says "Sand" on the picture. Will this work for a DE filter? Thanks.

A  Answered on 12/23/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello Mark, depending on what DE filter you have is depending on whether this valve would work for your needs. This particular valve works with a Pentair Quad D.E. Filter Parts. That is the only DE filter that this valve works with.

?     Asked on 10/12/2016by Scott Hawkins

Can you drain the pool with the pump? Would you use on the waste setting on the valve to bypass the filter and drain the pool?

A  Answered on 10/13/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

Yes you can lower the water through the filter is you have a D.E. or Sand filter by sending the water directly to waste. Please note that if you are dropping the water level below the skimmer, I would recommend closing the valve to the skimmer and/or using a plug to cap off the skimmer.

I have a SM10 valve and I need to replace the whole housing. Which one do I need? Mine is cracked pretty bad. Thank you.

A  Answered on 6/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Nika, Could you let us know which filter your valve is going on? There should be a label on your filter tank that will give you these details.

I have a purex triton 2 TR-60 with a sm 10-3 sand multi port valve wpuld your sm1-pp3 be the correct replacement ??

A  Answered on 5/22/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Paul, The Pentair 261173 Valve would be the replacement for the SM10-3 used on a Purex Triton 2 TR-60

?     Asked on 6/10/2015by Ann

Do you have a selector side valve to fit an old Heldor PF-50? Mfg. by Pac Fab. The filter works well as does our pump, but the selector valve needs replacing. Thank you.

A  Answered on 6/10/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ann, This valve here does work on the older Heldor PF-50 filter.

?     Asked on 3/1/2015by Rob

I would like to replace my valve. The number on the valve is Pentair SM-10-3.

A  Answered on 3/2/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Rob - The SM1-PP3 (4611-0) would be the correct replacement valve for your Pentair filter.

?     Asked on 1/31/2012by Guest

I need parts for my filter valve. When I look at the filter parts breakdown, it gives me different choices. How do I know which one is the one I need?

A  Answered on 1/31/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

In order to locate the correct parts we will need to know the model number of the filter valve. Two identical filters can have two different valves. Typically the valve model will be located on the label of the valve. If there is no model number on the valve, you can try to see if there are any part numbers on the valve itself. Once you've located you valve model you can check out our >Filter Valve Parts.

The product fitted perfectly. This is a replacement, easy to install. Loosen the connections from the old one and then tighten the new one.
