Hey all, got the new pool just about finished. Been having pump problems nearly from day one. We have a VS Hayward SP3200VSP with the controls wired into a Hayward Pro-Logic control panel all with a Hayward Salt Cell and DE filter.
So, after the first pump crapped out in the first couple of weeks with what seemed to be the communication board not working, they installed a new one. Now it seems to be running fine, BUT noticed that after a few hours, the pump runs, but nothing going in or out. Stop the pump, wait a few seconds, restart and everything starts back up. Same for all 4 speeds I have it set on. Seems to run strong for an hour, then slowly the jets ease and the filter pulls in less, again till eventually no flow. Stop, restart...etc.
Over and over. Despite the skimmer and bottom of pool clean. I have even backwashed a few times.
Called the pool peeps, and they have no idea, and not too thrilled to install a new one...same with the Hayward folks.
ANYONE had this problem??
