I have a 2hp pool pump fresh out of the box. I have it hooked up to my above ground pool, and it doesn’t seem to be giving me enough suction. There is plenty of water in the skimmer, and I have the hose plumbed at a downward angle to the pump. I have 25 feet of hose going from the skimmer to the pump and 5 feet of hose going to the sand filter, then 25 feet of hose from the filter to the return on the pool. Is that too much hose for the pump to give good suction? The pressure gauge on the filter pulses when the pump is on, and while the pump is full of water when I turn it on, after about 30 seconds the pump looks half full like it’s not getting enough water.
Where the skimmer is to where I would like the pump behind the deck is about 22 feet. So I need the full 25 feet of hose.
