There was a bad storm last weekend and ever since then the suction on my Hayward Pool Vac has been terrible. The piece that rotates inside it barely moves. I've taken it apart and put it back together. It seems to be in good working order. I've tried to manually vacuum the pool with just the hose but again, the suction is weak and it makes it difficult. If I put my hand on the end of the hose, or on the wall, my hand will stick to it and the suction seems normal. My filter pressure has been at 10psi the entire time. I have tried the following with no luck:
Snake port on wall to see if any debris was stuck
Used pressurized hose in attempt to dislodge anything from pump to vac/skimmer and vice-versa
Checked hose for any trapped particals
Backwashed and put in new DE
I don't know what else to do and my pool is getting dirtier and dirtier. I had to get in it and attempt to manually sweep up all the debris that has been collecting on the bottom all week. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
