I know what most of my pool equipment does, but I have two valves that I'm not sure about.
I'm going to do my first backwash this weekend. Based on what I've read, this is a pull valve for switching the filter to backwash mode, correct?
This valve I'm not sure about.
There is a pipe next to it, with a faucet. The back of that pipe is cut off, but does have the pipe going into the ground below. Is that for draining the pool?
Before I just turn off the pump, switch the valves, and turn back on to see what happens, thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone has any ideas.
And just for good measure, this is the lovely pool equipment area the previous owners left me:
