    Possible clog in return line

    Hi all,

    The wife and I have been busting our humps getting this pool ready. We've been working at it for the past 3 or 4 days now and we're almost there. Today just as the wife finished vacuuming, she put in a clean cartridge filter, put the basket back in the skimmer, and fired the pump back up. One of the return lines just started sort of just trickling out water while the other one is fine. The pressure is just a little above average-basically about as high as it would be if the filter was very dirty. Sounds like a clog to me, but this is only our 2nd year with the pool, so I don't know much.
    We have a 12,000gal in-ground fiberglass pool with 2 returns: 1 by the steps in the shallow end, and 1 in the middle. It's the one in the middle that's acting up. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Have you first checked that no valves accidentally got turned isolating that middle return off (or near off)?

    We actually don't have such a valve. It was working perfectly fine this morning, just started acing up later in the afternoon.
