If it is a Hayward valve like your post suggests there will be a word cast into the black plastic area near all three ports you need to connect. One will say pump, another return and the last one waste. Pipe the pump port to the pumps discharge. Pipe the return to a heater if one is present or back to the pool. Pipe the waste to an area where you can safely discharge water as you backwash the filter.

I found that little giant pump are oiled filled and if it gets hot it frys itself... As for submersible pumps Magnetic drive Beckett Pumps are nice. My Beckett pump has been going for 4 years now it pumps 4800ghp. the cost $269 last I looked.
Pull out the oil inspection plug and check oil. It is filled with mineral oil and should appear clear. If milky it would indicate faulty seals. The tsurumis are overheating often in skimmer box applications where the top of the pump is not submersed when the skimmer intake screen gets plugged. Tsurumi no longer accepts pumps for repair at their US facility. If you contact them they may refer you to a recommended rebuilder. It is a shame as we have sold hundreds of these the last 4 years and have suddenly had a rash of this similiar complaint in the last few months with little success in repairing. We have since dropped this line and replaced with Atlantic water Garden Pumps in similiar sizes.
I have had similiar experiances with these. My most durable pumps are 1. Atlantic water Garden Tidal wave 2 pumps. - ( 1 pump repaired in the last few years out of hundreds sold) 2. Pondmaster - most models. The pondmaster (Danner Mfg. customer service is fantastic- no hassle problem resolution). The pumps get better every year and THREE year warranty.
you can pick up a bottle of gas treatment at any auto parts store. they run between 2 and 5 dollars. it is not good but not necessary to use one of these bottles every so often. pour one of those in your tank after u fill up on gas. and u should be ok. also, the cheapest gas around isnt always the best. chevron with techron is great. if u fill ur tank with chevron gas once every 6 months or so it will help your car dramatically. the techron is designed to lubricate everything in your engine and keep it running well. i hope this helps you.
Magnetic Drive: In a magnetic-drive pump, an electrical charge creates a magnetic field that causes the magnet on the impeller to rotate and pump water. Magnetic drive pumps are completely sealed and do not require lubrication. Because they do not contain oil, magnetic drive pumps are safer for ponds with fish as oil leaks do not occur. This type of pump does not generate high head heights, meaning it is unable to lift pond water vertically, which you might need to supply water to a fountain.
Work best in cleaner environments with little or no debris Highly efficient, cost-effective operation Since they have no seals to wear out, they require little maintenance Occasionally clean the impeller and its chamber to ensure efficient operation
Direct Drive: Direct-drive pumps have an enclosed motor that is powered by electricity, which turns the impeller shaft. Direct-drive pumps achieve significant head height so they tend to work well for fountains or waterfalls. Some models seal the motor in an oil-filled shell with seals around the cord and impeller shaft. These are risky to use if you have a pond stocked with fish as there is an ever-present danger of water contamination if a leak occurs. Many newer pumps, however, feature alternative lubrication over oil that is safe for fish. Look for oil-free models if you house fish or other aquatic life in your water garden.
Typically more expensive to operate Ideal pump type for fountains or other accessories Pushes water rather than pulling it Not easily repaired by the user
