    New Pool Owner - Pump question.

    First time pool owner. Water tests seem ok. I shock at night and turn the pump on. When I get up the next morning the pump has shut down. The pump is only 3 months old. I changed the DE about 2 weeks ago. The gauge is running around 14. It goes up to 20 every few days and I have to bump it to get it back down. It seems like it will only run around 5 or 6 hours before shutting down. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hello Joe and welcome to TFP! I have to ask the obvious question just to get it out of the way ....... any chance your pump is set on a timer somewhere?

    As for the water condition (ok) and increasing filter pressure, something tells me you might have an algae bloom in the background trying to take-hold. Do you have a TF-100 or Taylor K-2006C test kit where you could provide some water test results for us?

    Nice to have you with us!

    Thanks for the reply. Pump is on a timer, but that is not the issue.
    TF-1000 results

    CC= 3
    PH= 7.2
    Alk= 70
    CYA= 30

    Hope this helps
