very low suction in pool vacum port

Postby AZWildcat24 » Sat 02 Feb, 2008 11:32

Hi. I recently noticed my pool sweep wasn't moving very much. I have a DE system and cleaned the filters and my pressure is about 12, yet I still could not get the pool seep to move. I then moved the sweep to the skimmer and it works fine.

Could I have some debris or something clogging my vacum port? I can't see anything, but who knows how far down the line. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Some times the lines have an inline filter that gets clogged. Check to make sure you dont have a dirty filter in the line.
