I just moved into a house with a fairly large pool. It has a Hayward Maxflo VS2303 pump. According to my FloVis, the pump moves about 30 GPM at 1800 rpm and 60 GPM at 3200 RPM. That seems a little on the low side to me, but not bad. The filter pressure is between 4 & 8 PSI, depending on pump speed. The problem is that the skimmers (I have two) don't seem to pick up as much debris as I would like them to. There are a lot of trees near the pool, and it's pretty early spring in Chicago, so they're going crazy right now. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I'm having to skim a lot with my net every day. The skimmers are collecting some debris, but not enough. I know I have to replace the ball valve for the bottom drain - it isn't sealing well enough to turn off to bottom drain. As a temporary measure, I have a towel covering the bottom drain and that helps the skimmer to some extent. I'm planning on replacing the valve as soon as I can make time, but I'm on a May 31 deadline for my energy provider's rebate program, so if I'm going to replace the pump, I need to do it soon. The pump only runs the filter and heater for the pool and spa. There are two additional pumps for spa jets. I'm thinking of installing an Ecostar to move more water. Any opinions? Thanks!
