Hayward's Vari-Flo™ XL multiport control valves are engineered for maximum flow at lower pressure drops. All Vari-Flo control valves feature an easy-to-use lever action handle that lets you dial up to six valve/filter functions:
Backwash - For cleaning filter sand bed of accumulated debris.
Rinse - Use after completing backwash cycle to ensure all dirty water is rinsed out of the filter to waste.
Waste - By-passes the filter for draining or lowering pool water level and for vacuuming heavy debris directly to waste line.
Recirculate - Water is recirculated through the valve by-passing the filter.
Closed - Shuts off the flow from the pump to the filter.
Filter- For normal filtering and regular vacuuming.
The Vari-Flo comes complete with an integral sight glass that lets you see when the backwashing cycle is completed. Hayward’s wide selection of valve configurations allows you to match the right Vari-Flo valve to the proper application; residential, commercial, top-mount or side mount.
Hayward’s Slide Valves are engineered to perfection. Different models available for either the DE filters or the sand filters.
