Question about Jacuzzi MAGNUM FORCE POOL PUMP - TWO SPEED 2 HP 115/230V
Our Jacuzzi pump was becoming anemic. I pulled the motor apart from the pump body. This is simply done by unscrewing the big plastic lock ring. When I looked at the pump impeller....guess what? First, I thought the little pump passages were just plugged with pine needles. Then... I looked at the side of the impeller..... and it was plugged with air soft BB's!! Darned neighbor kids anyway..... and I suppose my own also. The BB's are just the perfect size to make it through the basket filter...get worn a bit in the impeller...and then...wedge very secure for the perfect plug. Took a small screw driver, a set of long nose pliers...and a bit of force to remove the blockage. I used a wire to clean out the organic debries. Pump is working great!!

Very Vague question as far as problems go, I'll try to narrow down.
If the pressure is low on the tank that is a good thing.
If the pressure of the water going back into the pool from the discharge is low/ weak.. it's not.
If the Pump is operating properly, the problem could be the following
1. Extra long filter hoses. Any hose longer then 6ft will decrease the pressure back to the pool.
2. Chlorinater, salt generator or mineral cartridges in line from the filter to the pool may decrease return pressure, as will solar panels.
3. A filter in need of back washing. An older DE or Cartridge filter may need an acid bath. May also be an issue with newer filters that had to battle a bad algae problem. An Acid bath will remove dead algae from the inside of the grids or tubes/ fingers.
4. If you notice bubbles in the water returning into the pool from the eyeball/discharge, or water in the strainer basket is visibly swirling (bubbles visible) odds are you need you replace the o-ring on the lid of the strainer basket in the front of the pump. This basket may also be clogged with debris, which also effect pressure. Could also be a cracked or warped strainer lid. Should be easy to see when you remove to check o-ring.
