    Pump stops working intermittently

    DE pump. For some reason especially at night it will still be on but have no flow or suction. When I look at the pressure gauge its around 15 -20 but the pressure needle is jittering. What could be wrong?

    Could you post a short video of the problem as it is occurring?

    Pump running, do you have a lot of air in the pump basket?
