Above Ground Pool Vacuum PSI drops from 12 PSI to 3 PSI and isn’t picking up anything in pool.
I have a 24′ round above ground pool. This is 5th summer. Pump and filter are new and on 2nd season. Winterized everything well. New hoses and secure connections with no leaks. Took apart and put new sand in filter last summer.
Tried 2 different vacuum hoses – same problem. Do I need new vacuum head? Any recommendations?
Trying to resolve this before calling a professional and spending major $$- but will do it if needed The return on our above ground pool. We vacuumed it on Sunday and when I went out there today to test the water, there is dirt on the bottom all over, when usually the filter and return push all of the dirt to the middle.
I think we have a sand filter- feel pretty stupid that i’m not sure that’s what it’s called. When I cover the return w/ my hand, then it seems to build pressure and for the couple of seconds after I take my hand away, the stream is strong….
We just moved into a house with an above ground pool, and I’ve been working on getting it up and running. It was not winterized or covered last fall, so when it warmed up in the spring lots of algae grew in it.
I’ve shocked it 4 times with combinations sock and algicide and I think I’ve pretty much got all of the algee killed, but the water is still extremely clowdy, and doesn’t seem to be clearing up even though the pH and clorine levels are right.
We have not yet replaced the sand in the filter and I haven’t added any type of water clarifier.
