I opened my pool and got all ready for the season this past weekend. Was my first open myself after self closure. All went great thanks to you all and this forum. Odd thing is occurring for the first time. When I transition from hi to low on my Hayward Super Pump (1HP 2SP), I get a squirt of water out the side of the clear plastic lid going to the basket on the wet side. I shut down and reseated and tightened, but it is still doing it. I don't appear to be getting any air infiltration as there are no bubbles or noise, but when i go from hi to low it is like there is extreme back pressure.
Any thoughts? I didn't see any place for a gasket other than the amber plastic lid and the top of the black plastic housing.
