Are you sure this is a problem??

I always backwash when the pressure gets above 20. After a good 3 -4 minute backwash and rinse it runs around 17.86 or 18.

Now, I am talking about a pool.... in a spa I'd guess that the pressures would be lower than 17.86

Weak return, weak suction when vacuuming


It may be the hose going from the pool to the pump intake is partially clogged. I had the same problem,, removed the hose and shoved a broom handle through it to remove tree debris.

WWas working just fine then hooked up vaccum and cleaned pool now the skimmer does not have any suction-- water blows out other side just fine and I have gotten all air out of lines--- any ideas


Depending on how much you vacuumed, your filter may just need to be cleaned. The filter on these units are not very big, so they can get dirty fast. Make sure it is cleaned out. Make sure skimmer basket is not clogged up, and make sure none of the flexible hoses are crimped. Also make sure there isn't anything stuck in the impeller. A stick, twig, or piece of toy, etc, can get stuck and cause low flow. Check for leaks between the suction side of the pump and the pool skimmer. One more think you might want to check is for leaks on the suction side while equipment is off. a leak here will let air into system and effect flow.

Water flow seems to restricted and the hose caves in


I FOUND ON MY INTEX POOL WHEN HAVING THE SAME TROUBLE IT HAD BLOCKAGE BETWEEN THE 1 1/4 HOSE ADAPTER ON THE INLET SIDE OF THE CONNECTION SUPPLYING THE PUMP AND THE BLUE FILTER SCREEN BEFORE THE OUTLET VALVE. MIGHT BE WORTH CHECKING THERE AS THE STRAINER BASKET WILL NOT CATCH ALL THE FINE DEBRIS. TAKE YOUR OUTLET HOSE OFF AND OPEN THE VALVE AND SEE IF IT IS RETRICTED.

System runs fine until trying to vacuum


Pull the strainer basket out of the pump and reach into the intake of the pump at the bottom of the basin. If any debris gets into this area, the pump will not have great suction. The baskets and pipes etc will appear in good condition, but if the intake is plugged up, this could be your problem.

I keep getting code 90 (low water flow) on my Intex Salt Water System for Above Pools. I imagine that it could be a result of my water filter not being powerful enough. Could be the problem. I want to be...


If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.

No water coming out when I backwash. I cleaned


water level must be about the discharge (eyeball) in the pool to back wash. Check the hose connections to make sure that hoses off the the filer head are going to the right place Look for the words "Pump" , "pool" and "waste" molded into the valve. I've seen it a number of times where "Pump" and "pool" were connected the wrong way.

Filter is running with very low psi


First make sure your gauge is reading correct. Put your hand infront of the pool's return..if it feels good and strong, then the gauge could be bad. An air leak somewhere in front of the pump could also be a problem. Check all hose clamps, o'rings in any unions or valves infront of the pump could be bad or missing or the cover gasket on your pump basket could be bad

Spa tub motor need replacing


I havent seen to many motors this old, but today all you really need to know is the horsepower and the frame (either round or square). Pull the old one off and take it to a pool store, and they can probably get it for you.

Also..im not sure but i think A.O. Smith bought out magnetek some years back....
