multiway valve

Postby colinthecamel » Thu 27 Mar, 2008 09:37


Just bought a house with a pool and am trying to fathom out the pump system.

The settings are waste, backwash, rinse, filter, recirculate and closed. Waste, backwash and filter are OK. What do I use the rinse setting and the recirculate setings for?

Rinse after backwashing to keep debris from shooting back into pool. Recirculate simply keeps the water moving without filtering.
