what is the length from one end to the other of the valve ends that are in-line?

are all 3 ports for 2 inch pipe and can a electric motor cva-24 compool be used on top of it ?
Nick P on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All three ports are 2 inch and a electric switch would work with the correct spline
what position is the Handel for full open on the FibroPool 3 Way Diverter Pool Valve 1 1/2" ?
A shopper on May 24, 2021
BEST ANSWER: There is a tab labeled 'Off' opposite of the handle. The handle aligns with common port when the valve is fully open to both side ports. The handle will rotate 180 degrees from the position shown in the picture where the left port is closed off and the right is open. Rotating the handle clockwise looking down to align with the common port opens both side ports. Further rotation clockwise closes the right port and opens the left. There are stops that prevent turning the common further clockwise so that the common port is open to one or both of the side ports and cannot be closed off.
what different between Pentair 263026 and 263028 ?
Dang P on Nov 30, 2021
BEST ANSWER: They are the same valves except one is made from CPVC and the other is regular PVC. The CPVC version has a higher temperature rating so if you live in Arizona for example where the sun is very intense, you may opt for the CPVC version. Regardless, according to what I believe is code here in Arizona, the valves are supposed to be painted which will protect them from the sun.
263028 has a gray body--this picture has a black body. Is this item a 263028 (gray) or 263026 (black)? (This is the PVC vs CPVC model.)
Randal M on Aug 7, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The one I received is black.

Really high quality
If you need a three way that supports either 2 or 2 1/2" pipe, this is it. Can't imagine a higher quality unit out there.

Pentair 3 Port Diverter Valve
When I ordered this item, I was notified that there would be a 10 to 12 week backorder. The order was received within the estimated time. I installed this valve on the spa blower and it is working fine. I can now regulate the air pressure and bubbles that go to the spa.
