Low Pressure

Postby Lisalipo » Mon 30 Jun, 2014 15:26

Hi Pool Pals,
I have recently replaced all the gaskets on my whisperflo 1.5hp, purchased new in 2003. I followed the directions exactly and now I have a dip coming from the bottom where the basket assembly and the motor assembly meet. And the pump is only producing 5psi. The gasket kits on the market state they are a universal kit...is that true. Any help would be grealty appreciated.
Thanks

Yes check that pump impeller inlet!!! Thought I needed a new pump cleaned out the inlet, up and running. Also found that leaving the return outlet open, did show reverse flow when cleared. :lol:

Thanks for all the help. I found a similar piece of plastic to Newbie's repair man.

First post. The pressure in my filter dropped to nearly zero, however I seem to have good flow into the pool. There are no bubbles. I disassembled the pump and it was clean. I took the filter apart and verified all the connections and no cracks or breaks. I took the multi port valve apart and it is not cracked or broken. Could the gasket in the multi port valve be bad enough to allow sufficient water to recirculate back to the pool without going through the filter? I have better pressure when setting the valve to back flush. Any other suggestions besides the multi-port valve gasket?
