First, separate motor and pump. Remove back cover of motor. Drive shaft of motor either has a slot on end for a large screwdriver or a flat on it for a wrench.(usually 7/16) Hold shaft and unscrew impeller.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Start with the impeller and strainer baskets. Excessive debris in the basket(s) in front of the pump can reduce flow rates. Another possibility is debris lodged in the impeller vanes. If the baskets do not solve your problem shut down your pump and back out the 6 bolts holding the motor into the pump housing. Pull out the pump end and remove the diffuser covering the impeller (sometimes the diffuser sticks inside the housing and the impeller will already be uncovered). Use a zip tie or something else of similar strength to run thru each vane looking for things such as small toys, marbles, rocks, mulch etc. Once cleared reassemble the pump being careful to align the diffuser back over the impeller and into the pump housing correctly.
If nothing can be found in the impeller and the baskets are all cleaned and still you have reduced return pressure you will have to get into your filter to find the trouble. If you get that far, please post a comment with what brand and model filter you have for more guidance.
If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!
