Hey all, I seem to seem to have a Low Flow problem. I think I have all my equipment listed in my sig. I have had my 16 x 48 Intex pool up and running since May of this year and I have not had any problems, until now. The water has been clear, every time I take a sample in to the pool store, everything hits right within the levels that its supposed to be at. I have been running the pump on the timer for 12hrs and the SWG is set for 5 hrs. Both start at 4:30pm.
Just yesterday morning at about 7am, I changed the cartridge filter (size A) its the small 1500gph pump that came w/ the Intex pool. At about 5p the error code for Low Flow started. I checked both strainers and the inlet strainer (the lower one) has almost zero suction and could possibly be clogged on the inside. Also, I looked at the filter cartridge that I had just put in that morning, and it looked just as bad as the one that I had replaced, so there's another possibility? I must admit, I did go about 3 weeks in between changing filter cartridges.
I also went ahead and followed the instructions for cleaning the parts to the SWG, by sitting it in vinegar for an hour, ect. I did check all my hoses and connections and everything was clear on the outside and from just observing I could see water flowing just fine.
So, any other thoughts or anything I'm leaving out?
