Broken multiport filter valve

Postby Swim Jim » Wed 30 May, 2007 21:43

First off let me say hey to everyone here on the forum. Hey !
O.K. heres what I got. I craked the 1 1/2" water outlet on my multiport valve on my 22" Pentair sand filter. It looks to be beyond repair. My question is will any top mount multiport valve work? Are they universal? The valve I cracked is a PacFab # 96734200.
Thanks

Hit this link on ebay to buy a used replacement for a couple bucks.

I saw this part available on ebay exactly with that part number. Go look there.

Hey thanks for the info. Stu. Ebay is the first place i went. I ended up getting a replacement from a local pool store. What I was originally wondering is if there is a standard for all multiport valves. From what I could see on the net they all looked simalir and the only diffrence would be top or side mount. It turns out that isn't the case. It seems they all mount diffrently. I have my new one on and everything is running smooth.
Thanks
