So I just bought a brand new Hayward Xstream cartridge filter/pump system. After setting up and turned on, it was reading a healthy 12 psi. However, I checked on it every hour or so and each time I noticed the pressure was a little less, before bed it was around 9. Then, when I woke up it was at 0. The basket is full of water, no visible air pockets, good flow on the outlet in the pool, air valve bled, and the pump noise sounds the same so I am at a loss here. The only thing is we have 1 or 2 very small leaks on the fitting between the pump and filter connection (1-2 drops a second or so) that I was going to deal with today after work.
This is my first time setting up a new system, our house came with the old pump/filter.
