Hey guys, so i moved into a house with a pool and i've been trying to learn the ropes of managing it.
I have learned how to test the water/slamming process but i'm having trouble with my filter/pump.
I opened up the pump, cleaned out the basket, made sure the drain plugs are sealed. I used the instructions in the sticky to clean out the DE filter. I filled the basket with water, set the valve to backwash, and there is no flow of water. I would notice a little bit of liquid would come out for the first 10 seconds and afterwards, all i hear is the pump running. The PSI on the filter is at 0 and i'm not sure whats wrong. I played around with the main drain/shallow skimmer/deep skimmer valves and there is still no flow. I don't notice the pool skimmer baskets filtering in any water either, which was something i noticed last year when i had a company come in and manage it.
Looking for any advice as to whats wrong with my pump or something i forgot to do. The pump was replaced last year so everything should be fairly new still. It is also a hayward super pump.
