My hayward model S180T sand filter uses a SPO714T vari--flo

Customer Question

My hayward model S180T sand filter uses a SPO714T vari--flo XL valve. I just opened my pool and the filter is running but I cannot back wash or rinse. Any thoughts?

When you say you cannot backwash or rinse, do you mean you can't rotate the valve handle or, you can move it, but it's not doing anything? Also, at any time, did you have the plumbing disconnected from the filter?

I solved the problem myself an hour after submitting the request. Your response did not help me.
