Automatic backwash valves made in switzerland
Manufactured in Switzerland since 1980, the Besgo 5-way valve is a pneumatic valve that automates your sand filter backwashes in an efficient, simple and safe way. Thanks to a higher backwash speed than traditional 6-way valves, the Besgo 5-way valve guarantees superior backwash results and allows you to take full advantage of your pool by reducing the time spent on maintenance.
|How does it work?||
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 to 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.
|Good to know||
Thanks to regular and powerful backwashes, Besgo creates the conditions for crystal clear water of the highest quality. Besgo is compatible with all types of pool water treatments including salt electrolysis systems.
