Hayward Multiport Valve

The Hayward Vari-Flo multiport control valve is made from Hayward’s exclusive PermaGlass X L™ material. It is engineered for maximum flow at low pressure drops and is the perfect choice in multiport valves. All Vari-Flo control valves have an easy-to-use lever that allows you to “dial” up to six valve/filter functions:  filter, backwash, waste, rinse, closed or recirculate.

The filter function is for normal filtering and regular vacuuming.
The backwash function is for cleaning the sand bed of accumulated debris.
The rinse is used after completing the backwash cycle to ensure that all dirty water is rinsed out of the filter.
Waste is used to by-pass the filter for draining and lowering the water level of the pool and for vacuuming heavy debris directly to waste line.
The closed function is used to shut off the flow from the pump to the filter.
The recirculate function is used to recirulate the water through the valve while by-passing the filter.

There is also an integral sight glass that allows you to see when the backwashing cycle is completed. With a wide selection of valve configurations, you are able to match the right Vari-Flo valve to the proper application; residential, commercial, top-mount or side mount.
