Larger systems use a "dual station" approach which has two housings per station.
The two housingsshare common manifold pipes which allow a fifty percent reduction in valves and, during backwash, two housings at a time (1 Dual Station) go off-line for cleaning.
The picture illustrates the "Dual Station" approach. Note that there are three stations, with each station having two housings on common manifold which is most visible below the housing.
This Pneutroller system also has six housings in a "Single Station" configuration with each housing having separate valves.
