We can't get the pressure up, the basket won't fill completly up with water. The hayward veri-flo is old and doesn't catch real well in each notch. Do you think we should replace it?

Failure to fill the basket completely means you have an issue at the pump basket (gasket), connection from the pump front to plumbing (threads need re-tightening or tape) or some other condition allowing air into the system between the pump and pool. This problem cannot be caused by the filter head. The problem is on the "suction side". From the top of the pump out all the way to the pool is the "pressure side" and would cause another condition such as leaking water. Examine and tighten everything before the pump and check the pump lid for possible gasket replacement. Rob

Closed and opened shut off valve to strainer housing basket, no water in strainer, how do you know if shut off knob actually opened or just broke the knob?


if the basket fills with water once you open the strainer lid then the valve is opening properly. If you open the valve and the strainer lid but you see no water flowing in then you can believe that the valve is not opening and needs to be fixed or replaced.

Hayward Power Flo LX Is there supposed to be water in the strainer basket during operation


Yes, absolutely, no air at all! You should not see bubbles in the pot. If you do, then there is an air suction leak.

Note: many people they have a problem when they actually don't. When the pump is operating efficiently & properly, "Solid" water in the pot/basket area, it will look like the pump has NO water. But if you see Pressure showing on the pressure gauge or water being moved through the inlet jet fitting, then you know the pump is working, you have no problem.

If you actually do not have water in the pot, then you need to prime the pump.

I have a 20,000 gal in ground pool w/ Hayward 36 sq ft de upright filter, Hayward Vari-Flo valve. Actual suction at the skimmer has gotten very weak, (filters and traps clean) It does better in...


You say that you can see a large flow through the pump cover but that water must be coming from the pool somehow. It must be coming through the main drain. If you turn the main drain off then the flow from the skimmer should increase considerably. If it doesn't the issue could be caused by a nearly plugged line between the skimmer basket and the pump. I have had similar symptoms and I started by using a drain jet device on a hose to force water backwards from the pump to the skimmer with the main drain valve turned off. I couldn't clear the plug so I had to dig the line up and found a bad area of the piping where it made a reduced pipe size 90 degree turn. Sycamore bark, leaves and twigs were stuck at that pinch point.

I hope this helps.

I have a swimpro sand filter it is 5 yrs old and this season when i started it up it doesn't seem to have very good pressure i have backwashed it three times and it wont even run my pool cleaner no...


If there is not much pressure, the problem is with the circulation system. Probably the pump.
When a sand bed gets old the pressure goes up on the guage, but the filter doesnt do much. When there is a lack of pressure, its due to a problem with the water flow. Usually a clogged impeller, strainer basket, or skimmer basket.

The most common solution for a loss of pressure is to dissasemble the wet end of the pump, clean out the impeller, and replace all o-rings and seals, including the shaft seal. This will revitalize the performance of your pump.

Pressure at about 10psi then drops to zero then back then drops to zero again. Sputter flow of water. Filters and filter baskets have been cleaned.


Try replacing or lubricating the seal on the basket lid. Pool pumps rely on a completely sealed system to work properly. If there is any air getting into the system on the suction side the pump will surge.
