Hi my bx pool pump does not seem to work efficiently and I also noticed the gauge on the cartridge filter does not work properly either. Not sure what it could be? Any help is appreciated

Just go to the Intex Corp link below. Choose the appropriate pool and/or pump. At the bottom of the page you will see a link for instructional manuals and videos. Hope that helps.

Oh yeah, by the way...you may want to start looking around for another pump for that pool if you plan on using it more than a year. I have had mine for 3 years and I spend more time in the pool vacumming than I do in the house!! The 635 pump is not strong enough for the 18x52 pool nor does it filter out fine silt and sand...it sucks it up and spits it right back into the pool thru the return. Good luck to you

There is an air/suction leak on the inlet side of the pump or, if this is an above ground pool, the pump is not set below the level of the pool.

I have the same problem. I've replaced the filter and made sure nothing was blocking the inlet or outlet but it barely pumps. I also bled the air out.

My hurlcon CX 240 pool pump has good return pressure but very low suction from the pool and wont opperate the kreepy krawly, Do I need a new pump? Thanks. Richard


no
what you may have is a blocked outlet--filter --tap incorrectly set
good pressure but no suction indicates that the pump is pumping but the pumped water has nowhere to go

Hurlcon sand pump seems to pump water out of the pool. It's like it's on backflush all the time. Anyone had similar problems?


Either your Filters Valve setting is in the wrong position, or your filters valve needs to be rebuilt or replaced. (valve diverter or and/or valve gasket)

Hurlcon ctx 2hp pump troubleshoot


It sounds like you have a suction leak. What's odd it that it works for 2 hours then loses prime. I don't think it would be related to the air temperature. Check out the pump basket lid o-ring to make sure it is in good condition and properly lubed (this is a very common cause of suction problems).

Also check your water level to make sure it's high enough. Any valves on the suction side of the pump may also be suspect. Good luck with it.

Low water flow from filter


There are several ways to troubleshoot this. If you remove the cartridge from the filter, you would be able to see if that is the problem. If the flow is the same without the cartridge, then there is a lack of flow into the pump , or a blockage in the outlet, if the pump presure is high, more likely the blockage is in that return line to the pool. Make sure all the selector valves are open.

I have a Sta-Rite pool filter. In the start up procedure, you are supposed to bleed the air until a steady stream of water flows from the air release valve. Although I have confirmed that everything is...


Hi sstanl, Is your pump output or flow normal back to pool? if there is no water flowing through system you will get no expulsion of air or pressure reading on gauge. If pump is working then you probably have a clogged air release valve and maybe a clogged gauge. Just remove air relief assembly from filter top, remove gauge and clear any obstructions in parts. You should easily be able to blow air thru assy with gauge removed. Teflon tape the components and snug them back in their places. restart your pump and voila! air will come out when prime is established.

My pool pump pumps water, return is low pressure


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...
