Hi Rob and welcome to the Pool Care Forums

Typically a multiport valve has 6 positions and one "all open" position. The positions the handle can face (according to a clock face) and the associated functions are:

  1. 12 o'clock - filter
  2. 6 o'clock - backwash
  3. 10:30 - rinse
  4. 01:30 - waste
  5. 07:30 - recirculate
  6. 04:30 - closed
  7. 3 o'clock - all open

The valve in this picture is set to filter.

The order of numbers is so daft. Imagine a clock that goes 1 > 4 > 6 > 2 > 5 > 3 :shock:
