Cleaner line

Postby Al » Sat 12 May, 2007 09:44

My cleaner intake line does not have enough suction to work my auto pool cleaner properly. When I partially close the skimmer to increase the pressure, the pump loses its prime and there is a lot of air in the pump.

You may have answered your own question.....air leak. This should be at the pump and before. Replace the pump lid o ring and any valve o rings. Anything after the pump is an water leak

spray some soap solution on all fitttings for suction at pump, turn pump on & off to see anr bubbles. If not you got a air leak somewhere from pool to pump in underground.
