Just getting ready for year 3 three with our pool. Last year, the multiport valve on our Quad 80 started leaking.
I'm thinking about getting rid of this thing and just plumbing it direct. I've never used it. I'm afraid to backwash the filter because I initially installed it backwards and blew up $500 in filters in the first 30 seconds of operation. I still have bad dreams about our pool looking like it was full of milk. (no way I'm the only one to ever do that...).
This valve just seems like one big mess of head loss. Is there a reason that I shouldn't dump it?
