Question about Hayward 3/4hp Super Pump Inground Pool Pump 115/230 Volt # Sp2605x7
My pump pressure is about 9lbs i cleaned the de filters they seem fine i have good flow out of my jets when i hook up the pool cleaner the pressure drops to almost nothing. can my impeller be clogged?
The pressure you are reading is the pressure in the filter tank as water is pumped though it. When the filter is freshly charged, 9 PSI is a good pressure.
As the filter removes particles from the water the filter gets "dirty" -- it takes more pressure to push the water through it thus raising the PSI.
I think you are viewing this in reverse. Low filter pressure is "good" (as long as it stays above 8 PSI) -- as the filter cleans the water the PSI will increase -- when it gets to 15-20 PSI it needs to be back-washed and recharged.
The pressure drops when the pool cleaner is connected because pool cleaners always pull in air (in varying amounts) because of all the hose connections. This causes your filter/tank pressure to drop.
