Thread: NO pump pressure

  1. Back To Top    #1

    NO pump pressure

    Pumpin lots of water but pump pressure registers ZERO. Running a Barracuda, and doesn't seem to be picking up right. It's movin, but not as fast as it should. Unhook it from the skimmer and no real difference in the water flow. Open both valves and I get more water flow but still registers zero on the pump gauge. Any thoughts?

    The gauge is probably broken. They break frequently, and are inexpensive to replace.

    Thanks! Could be but my Barracuda isn't runnin like it should be. Had to clean out that line from the skimmer to the pump here about a month ago and maybe that's getting stopped up again. Probably is the gauge but still have something amiss.

    About to put some marinated venison strap wrapped in bacon and stuffed with jalapeno on the grill along with some squash on the grills. I'm starvin!

    Thanks again!

    Check your pump basket and impeller for obstructions
