Recently bought a house and I just managed to get the pool from swamp to clean and now there is a major leak forcing me to turn the pump off completely until it gets fixed. I went outside and I noticed the pump was making a weird noise and wasn't pumping water, turns out it had no pressure/suction. I turned it off, let it sit and tried again and then that's when I noticed the leak.
There seems to be a crack in the connection that goes to (or from?) the booster pump. When the main pump is on, water shoots out of the crack at a high rate/volume (coincidentally it sprays right at the electrical box...).
I'm pretty new to pool maintenance and systems. To be honest I don't know what I'm supposed to use the booster pump for! Hoping I don't have to call a pool guy to come fix it.
Here's a couple of photos of the crack and the overall system
Thanks for any help!
