Swimming Pool Diatomaceous Earth (DE) and Sand Valves Parts and Services in Dallas County, TX 

Keeping one’s swimming pool clean and looking great at all times is always a top priority for pool owners, and what plays the biggest part in making this happen is the pool’s filter system. Two of the most commonly used types of pool filters are: the sand filter, which makes use of silica sand and has been a popular choice for decades; and the more recent and highly effective diatomaceous earth, or DE, filter which uses fossilized exoskeletons of algae known as diatoms.

Backwashing is when water is moved in the opposite direction that it normally does in order to “knock off” the dirt from the sand and DE particles, and then redirecting the waste water into the appropriate external drain. To make backwashing easier, it is highly recommended to use diatomaceous earth and sand valves (also known as multiport valves) in your filter system. This specialized valve makes it possible for pool owners to easily clean their DE or sand filters with the simple pull of a lever, as the valve ensures that the water in the filter is properly diverted to the correct chambers, so that no contamination of clean water occurs during the backwashing and no sand is lost or released back into the pool.
