Pool water exiting through backwash hose when filtering

Postby tracylynnxx » Wed 03 Jul, 2019 08:11

Hi.
Water was exiting through my backwash hose during filtering and there was low pressure. I was told that it was most likely a faulty valve. The valve was roughly 7 years old. I replaced the valve and the same thing is happening. Water also runs out of the backwash hose when turning the handle to a different setting. On recirculate, the pressure is fine and no water exits through the backwash hose. I'm hoping you can tell me what the problem is here because I'm lost.

Replace the spider gasket in the MPV
Some people put a valve on the backwash exit
