vortexing in front of the return

Postby dave03 » Wed 20 Jun, 2007 17:08

I keep getting vortexes forming in front of the return. The only problem this is causing is when these vortexs hit the return jet of water, a loud irritating noise happens.

What causes this and how do I prevent it???

This is usually caused by high flow from this one return.

Altering the angle of the eyeball sometimes helps, slowing the flow rate down can also help.

This vortex may come and go with filter pressure changes.
