Am ordering a 100 sq ft. Pentair filter. Would this be the valve to het for that filter?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2019
I just ordered this filter: Pentair Triton II TR 24" Fiberglass Sand Filter | Backwash Valve Required-Not Included | TR60 140264

Will this back wash valve work with the filter that I ordered? Pentair Hi-Flow Backwash Valve for Side-Mounted Sand and DE Filters | White PVC | 261050
Jeff P on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought a DE filter and it works very well. It has a compatible hook up, no adjusting necessary. However, I don't know if it will work with a sand filter.
Can I purchase just the lid and handle assembly with the gasket for your 261050 backwash valve?
