Problem with the filtration system

Postby Tom72981 » Wed 03 Jul, 2019 09:19

I have a four foot above ground pool with a small sand filter and pump. I took pictures of my equipment but can seem to upload. I found an almost identical system on Amazon and I have attached the link so that people can see what system I have. The problem is that there is almost zero pressure. I am not sure what could be causing this. The pump is running because the motor is running and when I disconnect the hoses to the pump, water is flowing upward. I inspected all of the hoses to make sure that there are no blockages and there are none. I may have to get new equipment but I am not sure if this is a pump issue or a sand filter issue. Does anyone know what to do here? Thanks ... L1500_.jpg
