Low Pressure

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.

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.
