A sure way to help keep your swimming pool clean is to actively maintain and repair your multiport valve before it gets to the point of no return. The multiport valve on your pool filter is essential. In fact, it acts sort of like the steering wheel on your car. The multiport valve controls the direction you want the pool water to flow in. By maneuvering the multiport valve, you can rinse, backwash, or filter your pool water.
In this blog post, we provide tips, tools, how to guides, and videos on how to maintain and repair your multiport valve properly.
