The Besgo 5-way valve works automatically and can be operated either by water or air pressure. A connection to the water network or a small air compressor will provide the 3.5 bars required.
To program and activate the solenoid valve, a simple 230V electric controller / timer is sufficient.
The solenoid valve receives the electrical current and opens, the incoming pressure compresses the spring inside the Besgo valve and starts the backwash process. The backwash process lasts as long as desired, as long as the solenoid valve receives electrical current. In the event of an electrical failure, the Besgo valve returns automatically to its "Filtration" position. An involuntary draining of the pool is therefore not possible.
Changing the direction of connections C and D
If the pipework is not parallel to the unit, the connection unions C and D can be rotated by 90 degrees. In addition, a fine adjustement of +/-4° is possible. This guarantees an installation free from any tension. All Besgo valves have to be glued on the outside and should always be installed with detachable connections such as screw connections or flanges. This makes service work or replacement easy.
