Question about Pool & Spa
Normally, the filter does not make any noises! The noise is generally from the pump. Since I am not sure what you have on the pool, to be able to find the issue, we will need a bit more information.
Do you have a seperate pool pump and filter? The pump will have a motor and some have a debris basket in front of the motor. If this is where the noise is coming from, you may want to return/exchange the pump if it is only two days old!! When you turn on the system, do you see water moving to the pump, air in the basket, or is the motor getting hot to the touch?
If you have a seperate filter from the pump, what is the pressure gauge reading on the top? If you have one, check it when the noise starts. If it is higher than it was when working properly, you have a blockage somewhere from the filter to the return line. If lower, then you may a small leak, generally o-rings, and will need to replace what is bad.
If the motor on the pump is making the noise, then it can either have debris in the Impeller area, or it is going bad. Hope this helps! If you can let us know what pump and flter you have, we may be able to find out what is going on.

My pump is the same as yours. It has also developed the loud noise. I opened it and found that the impeller is worn. Its hole is too big and not concentric with the magnet. This causes it to rattle on the pin which sounds a bit like it is sucking air. I am struggling to find a replacement impeller. Does anyone know where we can get one? I am in New Zealand
