First time poster-been an avid follower of the site since buying a house with a pool in January. Everything was going great...until today!
After doing backwash today, put valve back to regular flow, turned on pump and added DE...all fine. An hour later noticed leak coming out of pump-turned off everything, re-tightened the basket lid and turned everything back on. Leaks out of several different valves and unions along the entire line. Turned off, re tightened everything I could find, and turned back on. Now it sounds like the pump is on, however water isn't flowing through the pump basket (which I did refill with water before restarting) and the filter isn't running at all (0 psi, and constant sound of air out of the manual bleeder). Also, spa drained down to 1/2 full (usually overflows to pool).
Any ideas or guidance would be welcome...freaking out without filter running because woke up this morning to algae and levels out of whack-trying to get everything under control but now the filter issue seems even bigger!
