Good evening, pool folk. First time posting, this forum came highly recommended.
Here's my problem:
We opened our pool this past Saturday. Gave it a good shocking, waited a day, and started to clean the accumulated winter nonsense.
After vacuuming for a while, my father in law noticed there was no suction. Opened up the filter, they were pretty gunked. Cleaned them, everything was hunky dory.
Monday, and I notice my PSI is around 25. Generally, we sit in the mid teens. Also, and I don't know the name, but the basket in the pump housing was about four fifths full of water with air in the top, instead of full of water. I opened the filter, cleaned them again, everything was fine.
Today, same issue, but the filters are clean. Shutting valves on various returns doesn't seem to change anything. I've got no leaks that I can find above the ground.
Anyone have any ideas? If needed, I'll post the make/model of all the parts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
