...And I know I have an owner-operator problem. Relatively new pool owner entering into 2nd season with SWG pool that is about 5 years old (we moved in about 18 months ago).
Had a problem with leaves in pool over the winter which coincided with a Polaris malfunction. Got Polaris repaired and it's running fine now. Picking up all the trash that I couldn't scoop out with my net. Now that temperature warming up I've become more focused on getting the pool ready.
Yesterday I opened up the cartidge filter and cleaned it while I also cleaned my Hayward T15 SWG cell with acid. Put Humpty Dumpty back together again and noticed a problem with very weak water pressure as I bled the air out of filter. Also, you might notice that gauge, which had been consistently showing around 11 psi last year now is sitting pretty much on zero.
Polaris is running fine but am getting very concerned about the pump. Thinking to myself..."Did leaves get into pump?" rapidly followed by..."Did I really screw this up bigtime?" and "How can I fix this?".
Here's my pump set up and detail.
At this point, both skimmer baskets are empty and Polaris is getting the last remnents of organic solids still in pool. I am checking Polaris about every hour or 2 and keeping it empty.
Any suggestions about how to troubleshoot and repair would be much appreciated. Thanks.
