    Pressure going down!!

    It is my second year with a Hayward DE(EC65A) and my pressure is dropping as it runs. I cleaned the fingers at the end of last season and put in new DE per instructions yeasterday. Any ideas?????
    It seems to be filtering and the pressure out of the jets seems very strong......HELP !

    Are the skimmer basket or pump strainer basket full of debris? Is the pump strainer basket full of water, or is there air at the top?

    Did you add the DE quantity for the 65 instead of the 75???

    All is clear in the strainers and no air. I may have added for the 65...gonna clean it and redo the DE. That may be it !!
    I thought the same thing when I saw my own post!!
    Thanks for the help, I'll post my results.
