Thread: filter control valve - parts

    filter control valve - parts

    Have Pac-Fab(Pentair?) sp-710 sand filter control, rated 75 G.P.M., 6 position ... there is the # 5037 on lable @ 3:00 position

    Leaks very slowly(for now) out top of unit, under handle. Also, handle broken, but not cause of leak.

    have hunted parts but none found under sp-710. Figure while in control, might as well replace spider gasket as well. would love to find a new handle and valve gasket kit.


    Thanks,

    Thomas

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    Your sig says you have a Triton TR-60. Do you have a side mount multiport valve?

    Can you post a picture of the valve?

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    Your valve is a 261055. The spider gasket is a 271148. You probably need a stem seal and washer too.

    It's a Pac-fab which was bought by Pentair.

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    So far Inyoupools.com "cheapest" on parts by almost 1/2, but look like they aftermarket products. Pool zoom look to b "pentair" parts. Ebay "cheapest" but will not buy from a never known, fell off a truck, source.

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    sorry all, ... not inyoupools.com, but inyopools.com. Have to do some research on that one.

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    F.y.i all

    Went to BBB re In yo Pools. they are an internet site that supports other dealers. Read most of the BBB complaints and looks like in yo pools.com did try to do as much as deemed reasonable to remedy each issue.
    As is often the case, BBB determined that most "issues" were customer order/usage problems vs. inyopools.com probs. Interesting reading, sortof.....

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    TFP does not endorse Suppliers or manufacturers. There are just too many variables for us to EVER get involved in that.

    Our members often report good success with certain equipment or suppliers and that's where we will leave it.

    Just a tiny bit off topic, but TFP does not allow "drive by rants" about business transactions. If you have never had a post on this forum and your first one is railing against another party about a business transaction, that post will not be approved.

    Similarly, if you make a gushing, glowing report about a resource or product and you have little to no history with TFP, that, too will not be approved. We are inundated almost daily with people trying to sell their products posing as satisfied customers.....once caught, they are permanently banned.

    TFP walks has to walk a pretty fine line in this area but it's one more of the many reasons this forum is so pleasant to visit.

    Re: filter control valve - parts

    Dave, was not trying a "drive by, or an endorsement, which, by your posting the comments you seem to have understood. I will not even forward an e-mail without some research on my part.
    Anyway, thanks for clearing up my confusion on Hayward vs. PacFab/Pentair. I was confused due to the similar Model #s of both brands and needed confirmation.

    Thank you very much 4 ur time.

    No, it really wasn't aimed at you but your thread did give me the opportunity to expand the subject
    Who does TFP recc for parts.
    My post is pointed at the forum as a whole. It was an explanation of why, as a forum, we don't endorse products or suppliers and then I got on a roll and expanded it into an explanation of why you never see any first time poster "rants" on the forum....virtually the same reasoning. We can't verify one side or the other.

    Personal anecdotal business transactions by members having many prior posts on the forum are fine.
