Okay..i am a novice to major pool repairs so I have a question before I call in the professional.
2 days ago I was vacuuming my pool and during this time I noticed that the suction went down and the pressure shot up..30psi. I emptied out the basket and restarted the pool, but after a couple minutes of running normal pressure, the pressure shot back up again to 30 psi and the suction once again stopped.
Today I started trouble shooting the process... I turned the pool on, pressure was normal, the popups started the cycle or releasing air...pool was running normal... as the air cycle ended the pressure once again shot back up to 30 and remains there.
I purchased the hose attachment and hooked it to the skimmer side of the pool and flushed water through but nothing came out in the skimmer basket.
Do I have blockage in the line?
Should I keep running water via the hose and try to kick the blockage out?
Or is there something else...maybe something sinister going on?
Thank you so much and any knowledgable advice will be greatly appreciated.
