My Pump Is Running, But I Have No Pressure. Why?

Many pool owners use this term when in fact they have lots of pressure but their flow is very low.  This is caused by a dirty or clogged filter, a blocked return line, or a valve that is shut off or partially shut on the return piping.

The pump’s impeller could be clogged with debris.  Check by first shutting off the pump, remove the basket to check the impeller by putting your finger into the suction hole found in the pump strainer housing.

If you are unsure please give us a call and we will walk you through it or send a crew over to address the problem.  First try backwashing your filter or cleaning your sand with a filter aid.
