low system pressure

Hi,
My system has been running at low pressure and flow lately. Less than 10 psi. I just cleaned the DE filter and not much change. Pump motor sounds ok I think? Any thoughts?
Thanks

Hi,

Make sure the pump basket is cleaned out. If it is, check out the impeller. With the equipment off remove the pump basket and reach in to where the impeller is. Debris often gets in there and causes low flow.
