    Whats with the psi?

    New Member but Third year with our 15' AG pool. Opened to clear water thanks to BBB. Added new DE to our Hayward filter after started it up AND the psi stayed at 6. The past two years it was between 10-12. What could b wrong? Pressure feels a little light running into pool. THANKS

    Could be sucking air or have a clogged impeller. Was there any devris in the skimmer that could have gotten sucked in? It could also be as simple as a gauge that went bad.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
