    Visual check of water during backwash

    I have no easy way to see the water coming out of the DE filter during a backwash. I was thinking of getting some clear schedule 40 PVC and replacing a section of the waste line. Other option was to pick up on of the clear check valves (don't really need the flow check) just to use as a window. Anyone see another option or recommend one or the other?

    Thanks,
    Roy

    Welcome to the forum. A clear section of PVC would be an EXCELLENT improvement and has given me a project I have the little sight bubble on my multiport but would like something a little bigger and a 6" length of clear is a great idea. You may well be able to get a sight bubble to fit into your existing multiport if you look at it carefully (there might be a plugged hole) but the PVC would seem a better idea.

    I have the simple slide kind, so there is no option for a sight bubble. I was leaning towards the clear PVC (even though it is more than a clear check valve) as it doesn't require any maintenance.

    Thanks for the welcome and quick reply.
