First off great place !!!!
Well i broke down and bought a hayward 1hp pump and filter xstream combo installed it on my AG 24 ' intex ultra frame pool (simple connections) but my question is with the pump; the pump is on a 100' extension cord that is 12awg rated @ 15 amps and the pump runs fine and is a great product but when i start the pump up it spins slowly for about 10 seconds and then shuts off......UNLESS when i turn the pump on and close the pool return valve then the pump runs up to speed , i open the valve and everything works beautiflly and the birds sing ,etc.,etc.
anyone have any suggestions ?????
