Question about Pool & Spa
Hi .. with the pumps loosing prime, yes, there is obviously a leak ,, if the pumps were sicking air into the leaf trap just before the pump , then I would look for the leak in the sucking lines, skimmer, bottom, cleaner. BUT you say it leaks out after shut down ,, could be a seal or gasket at the pump or filter .. or a blockage and pipe separation in a return line. If there is a blockage you may burn out pumps, blow the filter or blow a return line apart. Check the flow at the pool return nozzles, make sure all return valves are full open. Try selectively opening and closing selector valves to see what return line makes the pressure increase the most. IF the presure problem persists I would temporarilly add a 2inch line to the return side of the filter and run it to the pool on the ground, so I could have unrestricted circulation and save the water condition and pumps and be able to troubleshoot the pressure problem .. IF this bypass pipe does not relieve the pressure situation ,, maybe you need to evaluate the size of the pump for the application .. thoughts?
