I need to know what filter system you have. D.E. Sand Cartridge and by valve placement are we talking Jandy valves in the plumbing or multi port valve connected to filter?

The multi port should be in Filter mode and if jandy valves you need to look at the handle of each valve and there is a word OFF on the triangle part of the handle, whichever pipe the word OFF is facing is the plumbing line that is closed. You want to be sure the word OFF is facing no plumbing lines so the water has freedom of movement.
