I found this forum and read how a a ton of pool issues have been resolved! Im hoping someone can help me out! Here is my dilemma:
I have a pentair pool spa pump and a 28x16 above ground pool that is counter-sunk about 3 ft.
I first noticed that the Kreepy Krawler wasnt moving anymore while tryng to vacuum the pool. I did some research and did all of the recommendations. Backwashed, checked and cleaned the skimmers, Checked the union O ring on the skimmer line to pump, checked the lid and o ring on the basket, reached in and to see if there was anything stuck underneath the basket and line going to pump. I am at a loss! Whenever I remove the lid on the basket and close it back up, the pressure seems to increase for about 2 to 3 minutes and there is a ton of air bubbles before it becomes stable and then goes low pressure again. The gauge on the pump stays at about 15 psi.
I thought that maybe its the pump and I was about to remove and disassemble it, but whenever I backwash the pool, the suction increases tremendously! Does anyone have any pointers for me?
