Hello TFP family,
I had a nice algae bloom when I opened this year so I've been slamming - the pool has gotten "almost" clear after a week of 24/7 SWG boosts and filtering. This morning I went out and saw the skimmer basket floating, although the pump was still going. Uh oh.
So I cleared the couple leaves in that basket, then went to the pump strainer - a little gunk in there, cleaned. Took cartridge filter apart and thoroughly cleaned all cartridges. Everything back together, and the pump is still very anemic - can barely get water up into the pump basket, and barely through the pump at all, the filter housing took forever to fill and when it finally did the level of water in the pump basket dropped, raised, dropped... obviously the pump is still struggling.
So I searched and saw a recommendation from JasonLion to clear the impeller:
Jandy FloPro working harder now FHPM1.0-2
I reached my hand in and felt it, there was nothing caught up on it.
That thread ended - I'm wondering if anyone has any additional steps I can take to troubleshoot this pump?
