    Intelliflo Pump not working 100% - probably user error

    I just set all of the schedules for the new pool season on my Intelliflo pump. I have 3 scheduled speeds. It works great for about 1 day and then I notice that even though the pump is cycling through all of the speeds the outflow is not changed. I can tell because a few water features do not work well. After reading a little it seems that I might be losing suction but I really don't know. Any ideas or suggestions? Not sure where to go from here.

    Thank you so much for your help!!

    Pam,

    What color is your water and what is the filter pressure???

    How are you currently sanitizing your pool???

    Thanks,

    Liquid chlorine 10%. I backwashed the other day. Pressure is much higher than normal. Slam is taking longer than usual. When we backwash it will last 12-18 hours and then revert back. I never backwash this often. Thx

    UPDATE - backwashed again. Pressure is now 8 (normal). This is what has been happening. Backwash and seems OK - 24hrs go by and happens again... I will update tomorrow. Thank yoj

    Pam,

    The algae in your pool is simply clogging your filter... You do not a have pump or filter problem, they seem to be doing what they get paid to do...

    Are you following all the SLAM procedures? You can't just add chlorine once a day, you need to "maintain" your SLAM level continuously..

    See this link... SLAM

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    Thank you. I am maintaining Slam - checking 3 times a day and adjusting. I was out of town so the pool got out of hand while I was gone. It’s been awhile so I forgot how difficult/long it takes to clear my pool.
