    Triton Sand Filter

    Just a couple quick questions, this is a little older with only a backwash valve not a multi-port with rinse. Today I tried to pull up the valve to back wash and it's tuff as a rock. Any ideas?

    Could be the o-rings have gotten gummed up or debris is stuck in there.
    I assume you turned the handle before pulling right? If so, might be time to take it apart for inspection and lubing. {But don't ask me how }

    Yes I turned the handle but that wasnt real easy not like a DE set up. It may be time to install a new multiport..
