    Do they make a less dense filter element

    I have got a few changes to make in the signature. The popping sound you are about to hear is me pulling my head out of my rear end. This morning I woke up and realized I had a brand new filter element still in the box in my shed. Installed new element and problem solved....OMG!!! The one that...

    Do they make a less dense filter element

    I haven't tried it yet but in theory it should help. It would be like removing part of the filter element....hence less restriction/backpressure

    Never said it fails to prime. No check valve in system. Old pump primed perfect. Need to read the original post again. Primes jjust fine , just does not fill the pump skimmer basket all the way to the top. Water level approx 1 inch from basket being full at prime or slow speed.

    I recently changed from a Hayward Max Flow VS pmp to a Jandy Pro FLow. The change over is another story entirely, which I have yet to post and will not get into that this time. The new Jandy was installed by a certified pool company to maintain the warranty. The flow rate on the Jandy is higher...

    When did Jandy declare war on DIY?

    All I can say is with my recent warranty issue with hayward on my pump failure , which lasted 3 months. Several phone calls from me and the authorized service co to get the part. It became very clear they dod not want to help. So the co. I bought the pmp from stepped and agreed to swap me pumps...
