I have my pool filled and my filter has new DE in it; the problem is, I turn it on, I get pressure for a few seconds (it fluctuates, powerful to light, then nothing). I backwash, filter to waste, pump to waste, same thing, heavy pressure for a few seconds, water just rushing through, then nothing. I"ve unhooked all the hoses, checked for obstructions, reattached them, etc. All plastic filters are clear. I don't understand why it pumps for a few seconds, then nothing, no pressure or anything. I am really frustrated; I hope somebody can help me figure this out. It worked great last summer. I took the filter apart, cleaned it out, put it back together, then ran the pump...
