Just bought a house with an above ground pool this past fall. We had someone repair a few things on the pool over the winter (hole in liner, new lining, new motor for pump etc)
I'm just trying to get the pool open, and have the filter and pump turned on.
I just have no idea if the filter is actually working or not? Because the pressure gauge is reading 0 and there is water coming out from the waste pipe (not sure what you call it? (can see in picture below). The water is filled up right below the skimmer. i put some water in the pump basket because i heard someon say that primes the pump, but just not sure if that did anything. Plus one other question--there appear to be two modes on the pump when turning on, one is louder than the other, just can't see on the pump itself what mode is what. Sorry these probably seem like such idiotic questions but i have no clue what i'm doing. Thanks in advance. IMG_7913.jpgIMG_7914.jpgIMG_7899.JPG
