Sound like your filter is dirty. Try backwashing if you have a sand filter, or clean your cartridges if that's what you have. A dirty filter will reduce water flow, which in turn affects the Nav.

    I actually just need to know ho to turn on the skimmer as it wasn't turned on when opened today.

    If your pump is running (properly), there must be a source of water other than the skimmer. Perhaps a dedicated drain line or other suction. If that is the case, you could have a valve on the front of the pump which needs to be opened, or there is a closure of some sort in the bottom of the skimmer. If the pool was just opened, you might find a plug in the bottom of the skimmer that was put there in the fall.

Just replaced my 1000 GPM Intex filter/pump with the 1500 GPM. Worked great for about two weeks. Now it doesn't pump much with the filter in. Seems to pump fine without the filter.

The filter needs to be cleaned. the cartridge should be removed from the housing and sprayed on the o with a hose and sprayer. A strong, concentrated jet of water works best. I hope this helps.

Hi. Have you cleaned the flow sensor? Make sure that it moves freely throughout it's full range of motion. Sometimes things eventually will fail. If you have completed your checklist and the above mentioned then the replacement of the sensor unit seems to be the next logical step. Happy swimming

Turned off hayward pump 3/4HP to clean out leaf basket and when turned back on would not come on. The pump is a little warm, so do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Quite often it is the starter capacitor on the pump motor. Easily repaired or replaced by a motor shop or swimming pool service company.
