Quick exhaust valves are very good and reasonably cheap on eBay.

They are diaphragm valves that open realy fast. Great if you ask me

I worked for Van Dorn Pools back in 2000, some pool filters had ball valves, some had a flat slide valve, the faster you pull the tee handle, the faster the valve opens, i think the were made by Douboy and Hayward, 1 1/2" to 2"s. If your interested in finding out, you can call: 1-800-VAN-SWIM. I remember they sealed real tight.
