Praher Multi Port Filter Valves are commonly found as private labeled valves. Companies such as Hayward®, Jacuzzi®, Pentair®, StaRite®, Waterway® & many others utilize relabeled Praher Multi Port Valves with their own filter bodies. Praher is the world leader in valves, their products are superior and are used the world over.
Often you can identify a Praher Multi Port Valves (MPV) by the part number on the label. Praher valves are usually designated with SM- or TM- part number scheme. SM stands for Side Mount style valve & TM designates a Top Mount valve. After the valve type designation will be a number indicating the size valve body. Part numbers with SM or TM followed by a dash (-) 1 or 12 are valve bodies which utilize 1.5" plumbing connections, those model numbers with dash (-) 2 or 22 will use 2" plumbing.
In addition to private label valves Praher offers aftermarket replacement for most pool MPV’s, If you’re looking for a replacement please see the Praher Top Mount Multiport Conversion/Cross Reference
