    Question MX-8 Help

    I need help for the optimal setting for each of the pictured valves. Last year, my valves were set according to the picture for filtering and I ran my pump at 2000 RPM.

    For cleaning, I had to close the main drain and increase my pump to 3250 RPM so that my MX-8 had the optimal flow.

    I was hoping to be able to reduce the RPM setting on my pump for cleaning and filtering and have one setting for my valves. My questions are:

    • Can the MX-8 run on a low RPM setting
    • Does the main drain need to be opened for cleaning and filtering
