Swimming Pool Slide Valves Parts and Services 

In any swimming pool system, the filter is the main piece of equipment that keeps the pool water clean, hygienic, and looking great. The installation of a sand filter has been a popular choice among many pool owners over the decades, while the newer diatomaceous earth, or DE filters, have proven to be exceptionally effective as it produces the cleanest water possible.

One of those valves is the slide valve, also known as a push-pull valve because of its attached lever which is pushed and pulled into position to facilitate certain functions. By pulling the lever up into the FILTER position, water is directed into your sand or DE filter for cleaning before eventually released back into the main pool. By pushing it down to the BACKWASH position, access to the main pool is cut off, and water is circulated and directed just enough to properly clean the filter while making sure that the waste water and dirt does not mix with the clean water for the pool. This simplicity of operation is what makes slide valves popular among pool owners.
