Our First Post...!!
We've had above ground pools for many years. Started with Intex blowups and then 'graduated' to the metal frames. This is our second year with a 16x48. Last year we had the 'standard' (1100GPH) pump and added the SWG set up. (I don't know about BBB, but the SWG is producing some of the sweetest water you could imagine...!)
Well, this year we noticed the original pump getting sluggish and decided to get the 2500GPH, with the B Adapters, because our in/outtake tubes are the 1.25 and not 1.5 inch size.
Everything hooked up fine, even the new plungers (what a great feature). Here's the problem:
Within about three minutes after turning the pump on, the plunger at the intake starts squealing like a banshee. It is fully open and 'locked' (as is the return plunger). I can only imagine we're taking in air, but I can't find it.... (There is air in the 'filter' when I loosen the release.)
Any ideas...? Is this pump too strong for the 1.25 openings...? I haven't hooked up the skimmer yet because the noise is obnoxious.....
