    Low Flow warning on Intex 2650 gph Saltwater System

    Friend of mine had that problem, the over wall skimmer where the adapter screws to the wall had leaves and pine needles in it reducing the flow. After removing the adapter and using a water hose with a nozzle he was able to clear the screen.

    Irregular toy stuck in pool line-HELP!

    new intex sand filter loss of suction

    Welcome to the forum :wave: Did you make sure that the skimmer is well below the water? You don't want it forming a vortex as it will suck air. On the vacuum make sure that all the air is out of the hose by placing the end over the return to force all air from the hose prior to connecting it...
