Question about Pool & Spa
Our pool has the Hayward Pool Boss Pool System Control. Specifically I need to know how to backwash or clean the filter. I know this system has now been discontinued and just moved into a house with this pool system installed. The valves don't have any labels on them and I'm not sure how to get it done. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There are two primary valve styles ... a "multi-port" and "push-pull". Never change a valve setting with the pump running.
Multiport has a handle that goes around in a circle (only move it clock-wise). You should go to your pool place to identify this kind of valve and get new lables. Push-pull goes up and down. Up is filter - Down is back wash.
If you will study your system, some things will become evident to you .
Your pump pulls water from the pool through the pump ... out of the pump into the filter. Through the filter, back to the pool. You might be heating the water (would be after the filter) and you may be adding sanitiser (after the heater). One suction - two discharges (oh, the other discharge is to waste.).
Recap ... water out of the pool into the pump - out of the pump throuth the control valve to the filter - out of the filter to the heater then to the sanitiser then back to the pool.
