    Pool pump not level

    Hi everyone,

    I have a Hayward powerflo matrix 2 speed. The pump and filter are not level, meaning the whole base they sit on are at a slight angle backwards by about 15-20 degrees.

    Any harm in this? If so, I'll call the install company about it.

    The pump shouldn't mind much but the filter might be more of an issue. You don't want the filter falling over. Some of them are more stable than others, so it depends. If there is any sign the filter could fall over, get the base leveled.

    15-20 is a lot. I'm surprised they don't slide off the pad. If it's really that much, fix it for sure.
