WE had the very same problem and it turned out to be one (or a combination ) of 2 things....

#1 - our intake basket and pump basket were CAKED with algie, leaves and dead bugs...once we took em out, scrubbed em clean and put them back in we got much more water flow coming back into the pool from the jet

#2 - a friend of ours (unbeknownst to us) had fiddled with our Sand Filter controls and set the level to "RECIRCULATE", instead of the "FILTER" it should have been at....again, that made a HUGE difference in not only the color of our water, but the water flow from the jets.

Hope those help :)
