    Pressure when using automated cleaner

    My gauge usually reads 15 to 17 psi when using skimmer. When I use my Hayward bug automatic cleaner, it runs consistently at nine psi. Any issues? Anything I need to look at or change? Thank you

    There is more restriction on the suction side when you have the cleaner on there. This means the pump is not able to pull as much volume of water at the same time as it does without the restriction. I would think this is fairly normal. Do you have just the one skimmer?
