    Thank you, I knew filter, backwash positions & found Rinse by process of elimination. I ran chalk over the place where the label was missing & was able to read ferme [closed] From there, it came down to choosing between rinse & waste. Again, thanks for confirming - i have now used a white marker in case I need to do it again.

SOURCE: Labels Gone

I also have the same problem with the label on my filter. My pool dealership said I would need deal with Wicor directly. I see two other people with the same problem, however, neither has been responded to. It is VERY difficult to run your pool properly if you don't have your control lever labeled. An immediate response would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Was wondering how to change the settings on filter. Its a Hayward Pro Series High Rate Sand Filter and the instruction manual says it have about 5 different ones....i.e. waste, recirculate, but we were...


If you know how to place the valve into the backwash and filter positions you need to use these. The others are important at times but they are not as important. In fact another type of backwash valve has only two positions. This valve is one of the most popular valves for this function so it must not be too bad. I hope this helps.
