    Suction on the side of pool wall where pool vac plugs in has gone down drastically.

    Pool vac is not moving, no obstructions. Checked all hoses and connections. Was able to take the hose out of the "wall" where it attaches (sorry I don't the correct terminology) and noticed that the suction in the actual wall is very low, barely noticeable. I cleaned the filter, all baskets, everything looks fine. Water level is normal. The 'in-deck' suction is better than the 'in pool' suction. I have a variable sped pump and increased the sped, still not moving whereas before the pool cleaner would try and crawl out of the pool. Any ideas on how to proceed or what is my next step?

    Welcome to the forum. What is your normal psi at the filter? what is it now?
