I have an inground 24,000 gallon pool and spa with a Jandy DE filter and Jandy HHP pump. Here's the issue:
After I cleaned out the pump pot basket yesterday and turned the filter back on, the pump has been making a loud chugging noise. In addition, the air release valve is shaking along with some of the pipes. The pressure gauge remains steady at 8-10 (although the gauge is shaking too). The noise and the shaking decreases if I do any of the following:
- open the air release valve
- turn off the Spa Suction (gauge shoots up to 20)
I'm not sure if I have a pump issue OR if it has something to do with the pump pot basket. I noticed that the top piece of the basket is hanging by a thread and the issue started when I emptied it and put in back in.
I backwashed 3 times and it did not solve the issue.
