    It's almost certainly the same brand as your filter. It would be too convenient if the manufacturers used the same spacing on their filter ports. Look for a label on the filter or post up a picture of it. Once the filter brand and model is known, the backwash valve ought to be easy to ID.

    And you've been a member for four years, maybe it's time you filled out your signature and location?

    Thanks Richard. I put the model number of the filter in the original note: DEL60 CE filter. Guess I should have added Jandy to that. Your comment about manufacturer of the filter and valve makes sense, but my concern with just defaulting to a Jandy valve is because all the pics of Jandy valves I see on the internet look different than what I have with the non filter side ports being in different locations than the current valve, so figured I would add the pics to help identify.
