    Multiport Interchangeability

    I just ordered and received a new Pentair multiport valve replacement (pn261152). I think I should have ordered pn261050, but I don't see any reason why I cannot use the one I received. Yes, it has threaded connections which will require three threaded PVC connectors. It is the pressure side, so leaks should be obvious.

    My real concern is the connection from the pump outputmto the valve. It is side mounted, unlike my original that connects via the bottom. Again, I do not see any problems other than new PVC connectors and a short riser piece on the pump output to achieve the new level.

    Am I missing something, or will this substitution be OK?

    The only thing I would worry about is whether or not those threads are standard pipe threads or some kind of proprietary pentair thread for a coupler.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I checked with a Sched40 2" PVC threaded coupler and it fits fine. I will, of course, use Teflon tape.
