    Difference between Pentair 261049 and 261050?

    This will be going on a Quad DE 60 w/ Hayward EcoStar pump. The manual for the Quad DE says 261050, but I think the one that poolsupplyworld has in the "DE Kit" is 261049. What is the difference between these two?

    Looks like the 050 has the plumbing on it for the side mount filters and the 049 doesn't.

    I thought it was the 261055 and 261142 that had the side plumbing?

    Well, you've got me there! The place I looked showed the 050 with the plumbing and the 049 without!

    261142 is for the FNS series of filters. The In and Out ports are reversed.

    Thanks! So 261050 or 261055 is what I want for the Quad DE?

    Yes, the 261050 or 261055 are the right ones for the Quad DE filters.

    The HiFlow version, 261050, is supposedly a little fancier/more efficient in some way.

    Thanks Jason, my next question was going to be what is the difference between those two. Pentair's site isn't very helpful as far as specifications on those two valves.

    About 30 dollars

    They are both six position valves and both pre plumbed.
    I believe the valve design is slightly different.

    I haven't compared them myself, but based on Pentair's claims the more expensive one (261050) has larger channels for the water to flow through, and thus less total resistance to flow. Generally, replacing a single part with a high flow variant makes only a tiny difference that most people can't distinguish. But replacing all of the components in your system with high flow variants can add up to a fairly large difference that you can notice.

    Re: Difference between Pentair 261049 and 261050?

    I'm waiting for my plumber to install a Quad DE filter with the 261050 high flow valve. However, the Quad DE has input on the bottom and output on the top.. this valve has the input on the top and output on bottom. Why would this valve be recommended for this filter if the plumbing is reversed?

    EDIT: Never mind. I just took the filter out of the box, and the input is on the top. I could swear I saw a picture of the Quad DE filter online with the input clearly labeled on the bottom. Weird.
