    pump making weird noises

    Hey everyone, very new to the whole pool ownership. I cleaned out my filter because it seemed clogged when i was vacuuming and put the filter back in locked it up and closed everything. While on low, the pump is fine but when i turn it on high it makes a sort of higher pitch noise and it vibrates.. I am pretty sure everything is secure inside.. anybody have a clue? Thanks!

    Is there air visible in the pump strainer cover?

    If not it sounds like you may have something in the impeller. Turn the power off, open the pump strainer basket and pull the strainer out and feel in the pump suction to see if you feel anything. Be careful.
