Pool has been open for about a month. New propane heater installed at the same time. Can't get the heater to fire up, but that is another problem. Have a call into the installer to come back and check it out.
Starting to notice that there is sand on the bottom of the pool. Last time I replaced the sand, I replaced it with Zeo. I have read as many posts on this topic as I could find, and it sounds like I need to check for a broken lateral.
Pump seems to work just fine, but every so often the jets are not pumping water. The pump is still running, but nothing is coming out of the jets. The first time I realized this, I switched it to backwash, and nothing came out. Turned the pump off at the switch and switched it back on and it started pumping water out of the jets just fine. This has happened on more than one occasion in the past two weeks.
Are these two problems related? I am guessing forum advice would be to first check out the laterals.
My Hayward Sand Filter is over 10 years old, time to replace?
Control valve has been replaced twice. Pump has been replaced twice too over this same time period.
Appreciate any help
