Thread: Booster Pump

    Booster Pump

    My booster pump is not working properly. The motor seems to be running just fine, however, I do not get any increased pressure at the cleaner outlet. Any suggestions?

    Have you checked the impeller for blockage? How about the plumbing?
    Is it tied into the main pump discharge?

    It was working fine until recently, so nothing has change in the plumbing. The pool has been somewhat unattended so I am concerned about plugging.

    How do you check the impeller for clogging?

    You can disconnect the piping and run a water hose backward through the pump (in the discharge and out the suction.) Look for any debris that becomes dislodged and flushes out the suction. If that doesn't work you'll have to look into the suction end and see if there's anything in there. An inspection mirror might make it easier.
