Pool Backwash Valves & Pool Multiport Valves
By reversing the flow of water, pool backwash valves allow dirt
and debris trapped in the filter to be released out and away from the filter
and pool water, helping you keep your pool’s filter clean and your pool water
free of debris. If you are experiencing a faulty backwash valve or pool
multiport valve, or your pool backwash valve has reached its lifespan (about 10
years), we recommend replacing these parts as soon as possible.
At Pool Supply Unlimited, you will find an impressive selection of
pool backwash valves and pool multiport valves for sand and D.E. filters from
industry-leading brands like Hayward, Pentair, and Waterco.
Backwash valves are made of sturdy ABS or PVC plastic and come in
either a push/pull or multiport design. Both offer ease of operation and
require little maintenance. Pool multiport valves have the advantage of six or
seven settings that can be selected, in addition to basic "Filter"
and "Backwash" positions.
