Help! My skimmer keeps surging

Postby Chrisamato » Fri 19 May, 2017 18:10

I can't understand why my hayward power flow lx's skimmer basket is not filling up and if it does it surges and go's back down I have enough de and I I let the air out of the filter and it still doesn't fill up, I also want to be able to untighten a fitting but it's too tight how do I get it untighten I've tried a rubber glove or rag
Thanks and I have some photos below of the model [img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170519/2226b56187da5486a95de936a38b0ef5.jpg[/img][img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170519/65325db4c926720e325ed9d5451ced08.jpg[/img][img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170519/48081bec3bb088a1ae775548365fe16c.jpg[/img][img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170519/2a29bd9bb8804f148e28ed8b45cf9418.jpg[/img][img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170519/5c8af59194031da94ff49fca8525d8a4.jpg[/img]

Check the water level in the pool, it should be 1/2 to 2/3 up the pool skimmer weir door, also check that the door isn't jammed up
Regarding that fitting you will probably need adjustable grips a chain tong or strap wrench as used to undo oil filters on cars
