I have an older type Hayword DE-6000 that I need to keep $$$, it's has small crack next to the threads by the pump port.
I was looking at the parts list for this DE6000 filter and see on option for a plunger type valve at much less.
Vari-Flo Valve part SP0715XR50
Slide Valve part SP0410X502S
Both are 2" ports. The slide valve is about half the coast of the Vari-Flo.
One other question is when back-washing, I'm not thrilled with the job the DE6000 does , it leaves a lot of DE inside on the panels, do the slide valves have less resistance?
Thanks in advance
