Initial thread with pool pic here New Owner
I have a question about the filter valve. The sticker that shows what each position is has dryrotted and is almost completely unreadable. I can't seem to find any model number on it and need to know what each of the positions is. I have been running it to help get some of the plastic off the top of the water and have apparently been slowly pumping water out the back-flush pipe at the same time. I did not know as the back-flush pipe goes underground then into a pond about 50 yards away.
I tried having my son look at the pipe as it comes out of the ground and tell me when water stopped coming out but as the level was low the skimmer kept getting sucked dry and he would say water stopped coming out when i had not changed the valve at all. I'm sure I will figure out which position just sends the water back into the pool after adding water and with trial and error but it would be nice to know what all the positions on the valve are.
