    DE filter plumbing question

    So I am upgrading my DE filter to a 60 sq ft DE filter...
    I purchased a DE6020 from Hayward, with a multiport valve as opposed to the bump down handle (that is broken)...
    My question concerns plumbing the new filter.... can I plumb the multiport valve with a 90 to the pump, or should it be a straight shot...
    It is going to be difficult to get it to be straight..... Hopefully there is not an issue using 90's to plumb the pressure and return from the
    multiport valve..... I am also installing a SWG in the return line.....
    Any advice is greatly appreciated.....

    18X36 inground with vinyl liner.. Hayward DE .... Upgraded to Hayward Ecostar
    26,700 gallons....

    Using a 90, or even several 90s, is fine. Generally you want to layout the equipment pad to minimize the number of 90s you need to use, but you invariable need to use several, which is fine.
