Hello, I have a ProGrid DE6020 with this valve SP740DE but there is no Rinse option on this valve. How can I make a Rinse after using the Backwash mode of the valve ? Thank you for your help Julien

Hi, TahitiPool. Using this valve you will Backwash the filter, then place it back in Filter Mode. Rinse is not required since this valve has a limited options.

    thank you for your answer. The problem is that a little bit of dirt comes into the pool after the Backwash with no Rinse. Do you think i can drain the soiled water of the filter with the air valve on the top of the filter in order to do a Rinse ?

    • Commented on 1/16/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

      You can place the valve is the Waste position for a short time to eliminate any dirt or debris from going into the pool.

Do you have a video or instructions for replacing a Hayward SPO740DE on a Hayward DE3620 ProGrid Vertical DE filter system? This is new equipment for existing plumbing.

A  Answered on 6/26/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jack. We do not have a video or instructions. You can reference the Vari-Flo Owner's Manual Model: SP0740DE, and the Pro-Grid D.E. Filter Series Owner's Manual for installation instructions.

Will this valve replace a push pull valve on a Hayward DE4800L? The center distance on the ports attached to the filter is 5". Or would you suggest just replacing the push pull valve I have now?

A  Answered on 4/13/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Dan - The SP0740DE will work with the DE4800 series.

I need parts for my filter valve. When I look at the filter parts breakdown, it gives me different choices. How do I know which one is the one I need?

A  Answered on 1/31/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

In order to locate the correct parts we will need to know the model number of the filter valve. Two identical filters can have two different valves. Typically the valve model will be located on the label of the valve. If there is no model number on the valve, you can try to see if there are any part numbers on the valve itself. Once you've located you valve model you can check out our >Filter Valve Parts.
