Problem when cleaning pool.

Postby Michael » Fri 24 Aug, 2007 16:12

Hi there,

I am new to this forum so would like to say Hello.

I do also have a question that I hope some one can help me with:

When cleaning our 24x12 in ground pool using the vacuum hose conected to the skimmer inlet its is not long before the suction stops and the filter has a large amount of air in it. If I remove the flexy pipe from the skimmer the pump soon starts sucking again and after a while the air comes out through the pool inlet nozzel and the skimmer works fine.

This problem is getting worse so that I can only clean a small area of the pool before I have to remove the flexy pipe. Has anyone any idea where the air is coming from?

regards

Mike
