Problem with Pump and Filter

Postby micheallang » Thu 15 Sep, 2016 07:09

Hi,
Recently, I have problem with my pump and filter. They don't seem to work well with functions. What do you suggest to get them fixed? Or should I go with new ones to replace the old one? The old ones were bought about 5 months ago. Please let me know your advice so that I can get them work.
Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. They don't perform well. Water seems to be dirty, and the flow of water is weak. Not as they used to be. That's what I mean.

Hi Micheal
What type of filter do you have?
Does it return OK when MPV is set for recirculate?
Have you Backwashed?
Is the pump sized correctly for your filter?
Is your water low? (it should be half way to two thirds of your skimmer and the flap should move freely)
Is air being sucked into your pump? (is the pump basket full or does it have air in it when running)
Do you have Pine trees nearby as these needles can get into the pump and block it
