    PAC FAB Multiport valve

    I have an old PAC FAB Model "SP710 Sand" multi-port valve on my filter. It has started to leak in various positions. I reasonably believe that the Spider gasket is in need of replacement. Problem is it is an old valve and I'm having difficulty locating parts. I have been going back and forth with INYO and they have been referring me to a HAYWARD valve of similar model number, I am hesitant to go with this as I believe that PAC FAB was bought out by Pentair some time ago. Does anyone here know if maybe PAC Fab, or Hayward are the same just re-branded valves?
    I have added a picture for reference.

    Unfortunately I can't see pictures that are hosted on Photobucket, but Pac-Fab was bought by Pentair.

    Your valve should be a 261055. The spider gasket is a 271148.

    Take a look at the following thread and see if it looks like your valve.
