I have had a ton of pollen pods and flower petals falling in my pool and it has filled my skinner basket multiple times. After it has been filling up like this I noticed yesterday my pump was acting funny I have been emptying out the basket all throughout the day. I went to backwash it and it is usually a really strong jet of water that comes out. This time it had a lot less pressure. Still was running fine and everything. This morning I went out emptied the basket and then turned pump onto backeash. Pump starting making a really word noise. Almost like a high pitch whine. Still lower pressure again. Then I took the lid off of my pump and emptied the skimmer basket out of that one. I let the water just run out of it in case something had gotten stuck. Put lid back on turned pump on backwash and it fixed the pressure problem but not the noise. Has it maybe just been overworked and needs a break? I have ran it 24/7 for about 2 to 3 weeks now because my pool was a swamp. Any ideas? I have it totally tuned off now.
