My motor died the other night. I went and got a replacement motor. I purchase it last night and installed it. By the time I got done it was dark. This afternoon I got home pump was running I have it on a timer. I checked psi was four. I usally run at nine or ten. I am not sure if gauge is broken. I thought maybe had gasket in wrong or something. I broke it down again everything was fine. I am getting decent outlflow but I would feel better if PSi was higher. I called over to pool store talked to man who sold me motor he seems to think I am chasing broken gage. When I broke it down earlier I cleaned filter it's a cartridge was not that dirty cleaned it few weeks ago. The strainer basket is clean because it is brand new. I checked all connections nothing clogged. I mean hard to tell by looking at it but maybe I am being paranoid. Is there anything else I can try? He said if you put hand in front of return in pool and pushes your hand away should be okay. It does but not what I am used to. Also I don't look at psi every day if pump is running I don't look at it.
The pool is above ground 18 foot round about 8500 gallons
