Just moved into home and have a Whisperflow pump with Pentair FNS Plus filter with Zodiac G3 cleaner.
Under normal operation (no cleaner attached), everything seems fine - in the pump window I can see its full of water, there is no air in the system and the filter PSI is at 12.
When I connect the Zodiac, the pressure drops to at most 2 PSI, get some air in the system, and in the pump window can see its not full but it is moving water. The Zodiac does appear to be working. But I believe it should be working under the same conditions as when its not connected, true?
The pump basket and skimmer baskets are clean, I put the Zodiac up next to the water outlet to make sure the air got out before connecting it up. If I lift up certain parts of the Zodiac hose while its operating, where the hose connections are, I can hear a sucking noise. But how are these supposed to be completely air tight fittings? It doesnt seem feasible. Is that the problem?
