Hayward DV5000/KingRay/DV1000/AquaRay/SunRay Suction Cleaner Flow Regulator
Hayward DV5000/KingRay/DV1000/AquaRay/SunRay Suction Cleaner Flow Regulator (DCX180) is a replacement part that was made by Hayward from the same high-quality materials used to manufacture the original Factory part making this a genuine OEM product.
The Flow regulator was designed to help adjust the pool systems suction weather it be from use of the skimmer or dedicated suction line on the pools wall. If the adjustments aren’t made, then the cleaner will not be effective, this occurs when it is too high or too low and the adjustments can be made from the filtration system.
The part is Blue and marked with an arrow indicator that displays the amount of flow coming from the dedicated suction line or skimmer. You add this to the end of the cleaners hose that connects to the cleaner itself in order to make a accurate reading which should read somewhere in the middle, if low the suction is to strong, if to high then it is weak and the system should be adjusted.
