Hi all, we recently purchased a home with an existing pool, about 25k gallons, rectangle in shape, with a single skimmer basket. Pool goes from about 3' to almost 9.5' in the deep end. I originally bought a robot to clean the pool, but with all the leaves and debris from our yard, and neighboring yards, it wasn't doing the job. So, I sold that, and recently bought a Baracuda G3, along with the leaf catcher to put inline.
Well, all parts come in yesterday, clean out filters, gets going great for a few minutes, then stops. Hose is still shaking, just not as hard as when it first starts out. Shut everything down, cleaned out what little debris was in it, start it back, same thing. I just changed out the pump about a month ago due to the old one dying, seems to have good suction when the basket is in place.
This is an extremely old pool, I'm guessing 35+ years, so there is only the skimmer basket to use, no booster pump.
I'm at a loss, can't seem to figure this mess out, and I like to think I'm pretty good with things of this nature.
Any help would be great
