    Multi-Port Valve

    So we just got a house with a pool and I have a question about our Muti-port Valve. I read online about the different Positions like waste, rise, backwash and recirculate, but my valve calls them different things and I wanted to know what my positions mean. On my port valve I have Filer, backwash which I know what they are, but I need help on Drain Vidange, Winterize hivernage, Whirlpool Tourbillon. I think the word Vidange, hivernage are words in French. It is a Jandy.

    Winterize hivernage = close
    Drain Vidange = waste
    Whirlpool Tourbillon = recirculate
    test essal = ???

    Does that sound right.

    Thanks

    Some of the on-line translations didn't want to cooperate with me, but I think as long as you know one (i.e. filter), the rest should flow in order as noted on this chart:

    Oooooh, that IS different. Yikes. Well, I think we can fumble through it. Starting from where you're pointing in this pic (going clockwise), here goes my vote:
    Filter
    Rinse
    Winterize
    Whirlpool (Recirculate)
    Backwash (under the handle & opposite filter)
    Test (closed?)
    Drain (to waste)
