The Vari-Flo Multi-Port Valve can handle maximum flow for the ultimate in performance. The valve has an easy to use lever handle that lets you choose between six different valve functions. The integrated sight glass allows you to see the water when backwashing the filter which allows you to determine when the filter is clean. This valve connects to the Hayward ProGrid Filter and connects to 1 1/2" swimming pool plumbing.
Vari-Flo Valve Functions:
- Filter - For normal filtration and vacuuming pool through the filter
- Backwash - For reversing the flow for cleaning the filter
- Rinse - For after you backwash the filter to make sure all the dirty water is rinsed out of the filter to waste
- Waste - For vacuuming directly to waste, lowering the pool level / draining the pool
- Recirculate - For recirculating the water through the valve, by-passing the filter
- Closed - For shutting off the flow from the pump to the filter
