My pump is running and water is returning to the pool but there is no suction.


Are you saying there is 'no suction' or there is 'little suction'? If your pump is running and water is going back to the pool, that water is coming from somewhere ... probably being pulled from the pool. Is this a new pool? If not, did it operate properly last year? Are you getting air into your system?

You don't say much about your pool ... is the suction line attrached to a skimmer? Two skimmers? Two skimmers and a bottom drain? Attached to the bottom drain? I don't understand why you are reporting no suction since there is a discharge ... Is this pool in the ground or above ground? Do you have one circulator pump or do you have multiple pumps? If you have two skimmers and are trying to vacuum, close the shutter on the other skimmer or put a plug into it. Make sure the plug is the proper size, you don't want to get the plug pulled into the system!

Perhaps there is not enough suction for you to vacuum? If your suction is attached to several points in your pool, can you cut back on the other ports? For example, if you are drawing from the bottom and a skimmer, can you shut the bottom drain off?

Have you checked your impeller for hair clogging? What about your filter, if sand, have you back washed? What is your discharge pressure? If DE, how is the DE doing? Might it be due for a change? If a cartridge filter, is your cartridge clean? Of course dirty filters will cause high pressure and poor flow of water. If your impeller is clogged with hair, that will impede the flow of water.

Fill in some of thedetails and I will continue to try to assist you. Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

I clean the filter cartrige and replaced it .then i turned on pool pump and then went to skimmer and added my d.e about 6lbs just like it calls for.then the oulet lines in the pool started to release all...


First number two. Your filter is just full of water and without air in the system it will look like their is no water moving through filter. As the filter get's dirty it will be harder to move water and start to cavatate so you will be able to see the air and so the water.

When you opened the filter to clean it you probably didn't get it sealed when you put it back together Try cleaning and lubing the "O" ring or replacing it. Also check the inner support ring if you have one and be sure it is in place. Check the tank when running for water leaks to see where air is getting back in when off. If you can't see any you may just need to run for a while and let some DE get into leak and seal it, if it is small enough.

I am contacting you as I am a bit desperate for help. Please advise as to what should be done with regard to the Savio Skimmer Filter SS0000. At around 5pm when feeding the fish, I noted the skimmer...


This means that the filter or leaf basket is blocked. When the pump is off, the water levels will look fine, but when the pump pulls water through, even a partial blockage of the filter or basket limits flow so the level falls and eventually the pump 'sucks air'. Remove and thoroughly clean the leaf basket and filter. Good luck!

When I backwash or rinse my pump reservoir fills to the top when I filter I have air bubbles at pool discharge and reservoir about 3/4 full and air is evident. Do I need to start digging up my skimmer line...


When backwashing or rinsing the same water is used as in filtering.(skimmer and main drain) so I don't think skimmer damage is the issue. Check if the pool water is low at the skimmer after the backwash cycle, Also check to see if the skimmer weir gate (flapper) is stuck in the upright position. I would suggest 2 main checks. Fill the pool higher than usual, back wash, ensure the pool water level is 1/2 way up the skimmer level and try again. Also, if your lines are valved right, shut off the skimmer during the filter cycle and see what happens. Lastly, the gasket on your multi-port valve may be bad.

Just had pool opened. They turned port dial to 2


Welcome to FixYa
Dear Sir/Madom,
If your skimmer is tied to your main drain, then both holes have to be uncovered for your skimmer to work.
If you have a separate line all the way back to your equipment from your main drain, then you may want to try to open both holes in the skimmers. Turn off your Unit to unscrew the retaining screw on the valve, and then slide the big end over.
If you've not had your pool run all winter, then you may have leaves/debris caught in the line.
If so-you can swing by a plumbing supply house and get a powerflush hose attachment.
  • Make sure that none of the holes in any of your skimmers are covered by the oval tab in the skimmer.
  • Then, if you have any valves on the inlet to pool pump, rotate them in such a manner to isolate the skimmer line that isn't working, making sure that it is open.
  • Place the hose and powerflush device in the upper inlet port of the pool pump, with the pump lid/cover and basket removed. Then, pressurize the line back to the pool with tap water.
  • If it doesn't release right away, then let it sit a little while, as you may have to "pulse" it as water pressure drops as water leaks around the clog.
  • Pulsing it means to turn the water on for a few minutes, then turn it off. Then, turn it back on, and then turn it off again.

Look down into the bottom of the skimmer. It will have either one or two holes, depending on your model. These holes are where the pool plumbing attaches to the skimmer. Most skimmers have threads inside the holes, and a copper or PVC threaded fitting screws into these ports. Squirt food coloring just above the holes and see if any of it is pulled down into them. This indicates a leak which may be caused by a poor seal between the skimmer threads and the fitting. If you put your finger into the holes, you should be able to feel where the top of the fitting meets the skimmer threads.Repair any cracks or breaks in the skimmer walls with epoxy putty.Use the silicone sealer to repair areas where the skimmer has pulled away from the pool wall, where the corners are cracked, and in tile cracks. These leaks are the result of a cracked bond beam or shifting soil from water getting into the ground around the skimmer.

Cannot get pool pump to prime


turn the valve to main intake line (not the skimmer) and flood the pump with as much water as possible.
make sure there are no areas around the seals where air could get sucked in. when you get a full flow switch it to skimmer and main.

My Ec 50 is brand new and when using the skimmer everything works just fine , but when I hook up the vacuum hose the filter will run for about a minute at 10 lbs pressure then drop to nothing (0). My...


You have air infiltrating the vacuum line somewhere. The hose may have a swivel cuff on one end that must be in the water, not attached to the skimmer. Next, check the gasket on to p of the pump housing. Under vacuum, the gasket may bleed air into the system shutting down the pump flow. Lastly, check the skimmer thoroughly for small cracks. Again, under vacuum it may open and allow air to infiltrate. The only way for a filter to go from 10-0 pressure is if the pump loses prime ie: air infiltration. Hope that helps.. Rob

Pump and skimmer instructions on how to


Direction of flow is FROM the skimmer to the pump and back to the jet. Its easy enough to determine which hose is the "jet" hose and which is the suction hose. Put both into the water, or in a bucket and turn on the pump, find the one that is shooting out water, that's the jet hose. On these systems, filter replacement and cleaning is annoyingly frequent if you want it to work even remotely efficient.

My pool pump won't prime


If the pump is above the pool water level the it is unlikly that the tank will fill completely with valves open (which is ok).Most pumps are self priming and will pick up a prime with water level below suction inlet on strainer. Try starting on main drain again and slowly open skimmer line. Did you remove water from skimmer line and winterize(if in cold weather climate)during closing?.I know this sounds stupid, but make sure water level in pool is well into skimmer. If air situation remains after scspriggs' and these thoughts then prepare for a pressure test on skimmer line to determine location of leakage.
