I am sure that you already have an answer to this, but IF you can not read the valve label sticker, call the Pentair Customer Support 1-800 number. They will send you out a new label, free of charge.

For referrence, the waste position is ALWAYS over the waste port on the valve.

I need to know what all the settings are like bacwash filter on the valve system


FILTER is the valve position when the system is in the normal filtering mode.
When you backwash the filter you first need to turn off the pump, place in BACKWASH position, and run the motor for 45 seconds (or until the backwash water is clear). Turn off pump and run in the FILTER position for 15 seconds. Repeat twice more.
The RINSE position is to clear any dirt in initial start-up cleaning, plus resetting filter bed after backwashing.
The WASTE
position is for vacuuming directly to waste, lowering pool level, or draining the pool.
The CLOSED position is for shutting off all flow through the valve.
The RECIRCULATE position allows water to flow from the pump through the valve and directly to the pool.

You will probably only to use the FILTER, BACKWASH and maybe the RINSE valve position. The RINSE position is not as important as indicated by the fact that many backwash valves don't have a RINSE position.

I hope this helps.

I was backwashing the pool and put it back to filter and it will not ****. Thanks Rob


After your pool filters on the "backwash" setting, you should move it to the "rinse" setting. With the pump off, set valve to rinse. Start pump and operate for about 1/2 to 1 minute. This ensures that all dirty water from backwashing is rinsed out of the filter to waste, preventing possible return to the pool. Stop pump, set valve to "filter", and start pump for normal filtering. If it still won't start, check for restrictions in the intake and discharge lines.

How do i drain my pool with a hayward variflow pump?


To Flush out the filter with the backwash setting. The backwash setting releases trapped particles from the filter back into the swimming pool. You may need to alternate between the rinse and backwash settings until the water runs clear in order to unblock your filtration system and flush out clogs. To Rinse away dislodged items from the backwash setting. The rinse setting flushes clean water through the pipes and carries away any particles or clogs freed during the backwashing. To Drain the pool select waste on the multiport valve. This sends the water directly to the drain rather than back into the swimming pool. Close the filtration equipment and stop the pump with the closed setting. You should only use the closed setting when you turn the pump off. This function allows you to remove the strainer basket, clean the filter tank and perform other swimming pool maintenance on the filtration system.

How do I backwash my Pentair Vertical Grid DE filter?


For instructions on backwashing and other trouble shooting, you need an Owner's Manual. You can find one online at the following link:

http://www.pentairpool.com/pdfs/FNSPlusVerticalGridDEFilterOM.pdf

The way you backwash this filter is easy once you get the hang of it!

The first thing you will do is turn off the system, change the valve position to the Backwash position. If you have a Multiport Valve, you will press down on the handle and spin it so that the knotch is pointed to BACKWASH. If you have a Slide Valve, only has two positions, up and down, you turn the handle so that the metal pin is out of the holder and move the handle in the opposite direction. You will need to turn the handle to lock the pin into position.

Once this is done, you will turn on your pump. Pentair recommends that you backwash for 1 minute, then turn off the pump.

If you have the Slide Valve, you will put it back into the FILTER position and then turn the pump back on for 1 minute. If you have the Multiport Valve, you will put it in the RINSE position and then turn the pump back on for 1 minute.

Pentair recommends that you do this cycle a total of three times, backwash/rinse, backwash/rinse, backwash/rinse. AFTER the third time, you will need to open the Air Release Valve at the top of the filter while the pump is OFF and the valve position in back on FILTER. Once this is done, turn on the pump. When you have a steady stream of water coming out of the Air Release Valve, close that up. This way you have no air in the system.

Now, you will mix your DE "Slurry" in a bucket. Depending on your model of filter, you will measure out your DE and mix with water to the consistancy of milk. **IF it is just a backwash, you will only add 80% of the original amount of DE. You only add the total 100% of DE when you completely take the filter apart and clean it out.**

You will slowly pour the slurry into the skimmer that is closest to the pump. This will allow the DE to evenly coat the grids in the filter. Wait about 5 minutes and then check the pressure gauge on the filter. Once the PSI reaches 8 to 10 PSI above this number, it is time to backwash.

Missing filter ring


First, let me inform you that if you contact Pentair, either through email or phone, and let them know that you can not read the valve label on your filter, they will send you one through the mail.

One thing that helped me remember the position of the valve handle was that the WASTE position is always located over the Waste Port on the filter. If you know where the FILTER position is, stand by the filter so that FILTER would be at the top, or the "12 o'clock" position. Now, going to the right, clockwise, the positions are as follows: FILTER, RINSE, RECIRCULATE, BACKWASH, CLOSED, WINTERIZED, WASTE.

To change the position of the handle, you will need to stop your pump, push down on the handle-lifting up the pointed end- spin the handle so that the pointed end will sit pointing toward the position you want.

If you do no have an Owner's Manual, you can find one online at the following link:

I installed a new pentair de filter and new multiport valve. at start up the filter pressure reads 40 psi. after multiple backwashes and rinses the pressure goes down to about 15 psi but slowly climbes...


If the pressure is 15 psi on recirculate, and high on filter, the problem is the filter itself, or the valve plumbing. The DE filters are unusal in the fact that they are plumbed like a sand filter, NOT the cartridge filter. If you could give details as to which filter AND multiport valve you have (look on sticker for model number on valve) it would help to figure out if the problem is in the filter or valve.

To back wash my filter


The drain is the black cap that is on the side on the tank near the bottom. To backwash this type of filter you do not need to drain it. Turn off pump, move multiport valve handle to backwash, run pump for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, turn off pump, move valve to rinse, run pump for 10 seconds, turn off pump, move handle back to filter. You may need to repeat depending on how dirty the filter is...
