Water only goes through the multiport valve when backwashing. Simply move 2 push-pull type valves and the water flows through the multiport valve to allow for backwashing, rinse, etc. Then move the push-pull valves back to their original position and water flows through the filter as normal but unrestricted. Water enters the lower port and exits the upper port going back to the pond. Why is all of this important? It allows you to run a smaller more energy efficient pump to do the same job. This is good for the environment and your pocket book.
Bottom Drains and Skimmers
The first step in building a pond is ensuring that waste products are efficiently removed from the system. The application of skimmers and bottom drains is essential in this regard. Pond Skimmers can remove as much as 85% of debris before it settles to the pond bottom and are the most effective way of reducing maintenance and increasing the quality of water in your backyard pond. The addition of a pond skimmer will greatly reduce the maintenance and increase the enjoyment of your pond. Pond skimmers are designed to work with other types of filters, as a sort of pre-filter that removes the larger elements such as floating leaves and other debris, which would clog other types of biological or chemical filters. The same deris would also clog the pump.
