    Another HELP?

    I'm blowing returns now, the 2 closest returns are blowing bubbles like crazy but the 2 farther ones.....nothing. I got the compressor going at 75 psi. The 2 returns in question are about 40-50' from pad.

    It makes no sense to me because those returns been working great all summer, even today when I started to close my pool. I cant imagine it being clogged. I really dont want to close n cover til I get this settled.

    Thanks

    I am no expert on closing with multiple returns, but do you have the ability to isolate each individually? If not, then I would plug the close ones with an expanding rubber stopper to force the flow out the far ones.

    I have two plugged (returns) but the other two nothing. Getting frustrated because it doesn't make sense...does it?
