    Difference between a Pentair Hiflow and Multiport valve?

    I am replacing the push pull valve that is being used on my Pentair FNSP36 to a multiport.

    I see that Pentair has two different types, a "Hiflow" p/n 261142 and a "Multiport" p/n 261152. Both appear to be multiport valves though.

    I am not sure what the differences are or which to go with.

    If anyone can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

    The Hiflow is designed for high flow applications. With the 36 sqft I'd just get the standard flow model.
