Low pressure in filter gauge??

Postby marcyc » Wed 14 Jun, 2006 19:34

Hi there, I have low pressure around 4 in my gauge, and my pump doesn't seem to fill all the way, I can see water hitting the top. Also, there is not enough pressure to run my EZ vac. I was wondering what you might think the problem is?

Hi marcyc

I have had a problem just like yours, and what it was is that the inlet line from the skimmer had a leak at the elbow. If you want to know if you have the same problem as I did then just watch your water level, if you notice it is going down alot then that is more then likely your problem. If your water level stays normal then check the rubber gasket at the top of your pump, the one that seals the lid on.

I hope this helps!
