Ive been reading the pool school, bought the recommended test kit and understand the test kit, and finally replaced all of my orings and have perfect suction and I'm 99 % i have no suction leaks. My problem now is that I cant get my filter to filter - now that my pump seems to be running better than ever, its working too good i guess.
It seems like the water is shooting in and out and bypassing the catridge filter. I'll let the air bleed out and 5 minutes later go bleed it out again and again, etc. Its like the water is going out faster than it comes in if that makes any sense. If i look at my jets, i see the algae i'm vacuuming up shooting right out instantly. I did have to buy a new pool motor and i bought one at Leslies - one of the Ecotech variable speed motors 3.5 hp at 100 %. Maybe its too powerful?
