    Anthony DE Filter manifold...Alternatives?

    Hi all:

    I'm currently digging up all the gravel and dirt to expose the pipes leading to and from my pool equipment. I need to move all of it about 10 feet or so and I'd like to refresh, replace, rebuild or upgrade while I'm going through the trouble. I'm also removing all copper piping, connectors and (I'm guessing) brass gate valves. Thankfully the copper is only above ground, so matching everything up below ground level in PVC and finishing will be relatively easy.

    One of the pieces of equipment I'm not sure about is the filter manifold. This one does work but I was hoping to perhaps update to a modern style....and hopefully one that will line up to the existing filter inlet/outlet.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    That's just a "slide bachwash valve." You have two positions: Filter and backwash. I'd look into a multiport valve. You then have the options of recirculate and waste, which lets you drain the pool easily, or bypass the filter if you're just interested in circulating the water for some reason.

    Thanks Richard. Would you happen to know if a multi-port valve will fit up to the in/out ports on the filter?

    Not a clue. But if you get one that uses standard PVC, who cares? Plumb it where it fits best, or is most convenient.

    Yup, that's what it's looking like. None seem to retrofit to the Anthony configuration. Thanks again!
