My pump is quite noisy at the moment. It has made this noise before but I just reprimed the pump and the noise went away. Thats not working this time. The pump and sand filter is new this season and has been working great - still is - just noisy.

Can anyone help? :(

Thanks for responding Anna. I was so desparate (the shop wanted me to shock the pool for a week or two while I returned the pump and they repaired it!) I unhooked the pump from the rest of the equipment and kept rinsing it through with the hose. I did notice some sand coming out. It is now hooked up and running quietly. However, it might have been ok if I had done as you suggested also. If it happens again I will test it in the manner you suggest before I start unhooking everything.

Thanks for the tip.
