Looks better than the Toads that were laying eggs in my pool while it was under construction. YUK!Those worm looking critters are millipedes. Make good fish bait. They're drawn to warm, dark, moist areas so you may want to check around your pump pad for leaks. No idea why they like to get in pools.
Your filter is clogging from algae or something in the water. Turning the pump off and on lets the stuff come off the sand and settle into the bottom of the filter which allows the pressure to go back to normal until it clogs again.Next issue.
My filter pressure and water jet output has started to plummet sometimes. I can turn the pump off, then back on, and that seems to correct it. Skimmer and pump baskets clear. Any idea what might cause that?
Yes, it drops greatly from around 15-20 down to ~5 PSI.Something is in the water and clogging the filter to slow the water flow. You may need to open the filter and take a look.
You seeing a change in filter pressure when flow slows?
If it was algae or something clogging the sand I would expect filter pressure to rise, not drop.Yes, it drops greatly from around 15-20 down to ~5 PSI.
Can it be related to the seals and o-rings on the MPV leaking? Dealing with that right now.
