Question about Pool & Spa
My pump seems loud and is in need of a purge. I think it\'s drawing air more than water and the pressure goes up and down. It\'s not steady.
Copy following link to identify Hayward product and download product manual with troubleshoot section:
Select 'Pumps: above ground' or scroll down to same
Typical troubleshoot section:
Low flow "Check for clogged strainer or suction line, plugged discharge line, air leak in pipes or tubing, bad impeller"
Noisy pump "Check for air leak, foreign matter in pump housing, worn out bearings etc"
Air in line due to loose pipe or tube, clogged intake and outfow, and bad pump is common to both symptoms.

fix any air leaks on suction side of pump. Check valve positions.
Clean filters...may need to replace cartridges in cartridge filter, or take out D.E. grid assembly and clean it on a D.E. filter, or change sand in a sand filter...

First make sure water level is right, try leaving air valve closed and see if pressure bilds, then open slowly you should get a stream.

this usually indicates an air leak in the plumbing. it will **** air because it is easier than water if there is a leak in the plumbing.
good luck David

Take out the pump pot basket and stick your finger in the hole towards the motor (make sure the motor won't kick on!!). What you should feel is the impeller. It has five grooves in the face of it and each one needs to be cleaned of foilage and debris. With every hole clogged in the impeller you lose 20% of your motors effeciency. With whisperflow brand the pump pot basket is poorly designed where debris like pine needles go straight through.
