Is there anyway you can just purchase they handle on the valve, the plastic handle for direction of the valve broke ....valve is okay . Thanks
Label on my filter valve is faded.
Hoe can I identify the valve positions?
Jim, If you look hard at the label on the "Waterway Top Mount Valve Clearwater/ Valve Lid Assembly" you can just make ot the 7 positions and their sequence. This link shows three pictures. The sequence is: bypass to pool, rinse, filter, bypass to waste, winterize, closed, and backwash.
After back washing the pool and returning to filter position , water pours out of the backwash hose opening on the filter. Would a new handle gasket fix this problem? If not what would you recommend?
how can I tell what year our waterway 16 inch sand filter is ,We bought the filter in 2004 and I cant find a model # on it thanks Rick
Hi Rick, You can only tell if the manufacturer lists it on the unit or contact Waterway with the unit serial number.
I need to replace the valve on my 19" Proline sand filter and the only number that I could find is 718-1960. Would this be the correct replacement valve?
(5 out of 5 stars) Good Product

Pros: Simple, effective
It's a good valve, and had the folks who installed my pool not over tightened the original one cracking the top, I would still be using the original.
