I have had the pump for just over a year. Every time it would turn on, whether by schedule or manually, it would always to go full speed then gradually come down to the required speed.
For the past few weeks when it started up it would go to the RPM setting I have programmed without going to full speed to prime or whatever it is doing. Today it just went back to going to full speed every time it starts.
Any ideas what is going on? My second pump (same exact pump) for the water features always turns on going to the preset speed without going to maximum speed. I would prefer the main pump to work the same way as when the water level in the pool is a little low, full speed causes the near skimmer to suck air on startup and the pump has trouble starting.
I checked the priming settings, they are all set to 0 and 1000 RPM. Water level is full, all skimmers and pool filter are clean.
