    Need new backwash valve

    I have 2 inch unions on the sand filter and found this one on amazon, this may be silly but it says its for DE filters only, if im not mistaken this can still be used for sand right? http://www.amazon.com/Hayward-SP0715...2909188&sr=1-6

    Usually the ports are reversed between sand and DE filters. Meaning sand filter has the inlet on the top and the outlet on the bottom; while the DE filter has the inlet on the bottom and the outlet on the top. So, they would not be interchangeable.

    Any recommendations for a multi port side mount, I currently have a broken push and pull and all the push and pulls on amazon have bad reviews.

    What is the model of your filter? That can tell us what valve selection we are dealing with.

    Spacings are different for different brands I think.
