poor suction and backwash

Postby Robynann » Wed 21 Jun, 2006 19:19

I am trying to open my parents pool, when I vaccum I loose suction after a few min, suction is not very strong from the beginning, backwash doesnt shoot out fast and far like before. Everything says possible clog. How do I flush the hoses? Above ground, hayward sand filter

losing pressure when vacumming pool

Robyann: I also have the haywood pump...you may need to check your hoses for holes or leakage..sounds like a bad hose...therefore no pressure..I had this happen to me also..and sure enough it was a hose that had a leak.replaced it and all is fine...YOu can do this when the pool is full..get someone to hold a bucket (flush) with lots of pressure against. the side wall of the pool while you disconnect the hose and check it.. if it is clogged inside...or leaking...be sure to have another hose available so you can replace it right away...if no leaks nor it is not clogged just put it back on...tighten really good with your clamps so it doesn't leak..this is a start..if all that is okay...motor on pump may be going bad and not enough psi...
