There are several ways to troubleshoot this. If you remove the cartridge from the filter, you would be able to see if that is the problem. If the flow is the same without the cartridge, then there is a lack of flow into the pump , or a blockage in the outlet, if the pump presure is high, more likely the blockage is in that return line to the pool. Make sure all the selector valves are open.

My bug worked great last season but this year I will find it stopped in the pool not moving, I will pick it up and push on the feet to get them running again and it will stop again, what do I need to

It may be that you have one of several possible problems that could be the reason for the symptom you are experiencing:
  • Low water flow thru circulation system
    • Dirty Filter
    • Baskets filled with debris
    • Clogged Pump Impeller
    • Clogged suction line between suction port and actual cleaner
    • Clogged/plugged cleaning unit itself
  • Worn gear assembly within the LadyBug

Help with low flow on intext krystal clear saltwater system.

You can check the inlet line where it comes from the pool... Their is a little sreening/filtering system in the the parts that screw together and connect the valve to the pool... When I unscrewed mine, it was jammed with bugs, leaves, green algea... That did the trick for me... I am sure you already changed/cleaned the filter in the filter/pump that comes before the Salt water system... That will cause low flow as well...

Low water flow code

Most causes for this code is that the pump stopped before the chlorinator cycle ended. If not, you may have a dirty filter, low water in pool that caused no flow to the unit or stuck flow sensor... Make sure that you sync your chlorinator between you pump cycle...
Hope this helped, if it did, please rate!!!

What you need to do is either clean out the filter cartridge or replace it with a new one. If you have a spray nozel for your hose you can clean the cartridge by adjusting the nozel so it is a small but strong stream. Run the stream up and down on the cartridge until all the area has been covered and then install it in the system. If you still have little flow then you should replace the filter cartridge.

I hope this helps.

There is very little suction when i vacuum the pool and low pressure for water coming out of the filter.. ?? pump is only 1 year old... what is constricting my flow or how do i increase the flow.. no loud...

Change the filter.Then check for debris in the hoses and in the caps inside the pool,where the water goes in and out.Also you can try placing the pump up above the ground,at our house I use an old milk crate.

Can a person use a hayward de ec40 for either above ground pools or inground pools? if not why?

Yes as long as you are sure to match the flow rate of the pump to the filter. The biggest limit will be the low maximum flow rate the EC40 has. It will clog up to fast if installed on a larger pool...inground pools are generally larger (more gallons of water) than above ground. The pumps are more important to match as far as using inground rated units for inground pools and above ground for inground. Filters only care about flow rate and overall volume of water to keep clean.

I keep getting code 90 (low water flow) on my Intex Salt Water System for Above Pools. I imagine that it could be a result of my water filter not being powerful enough. Could be the problem. I want to be...

If your pool has the skimmer system there is a hose coming from the bottom of the skimmer to the wall of the pool which would be your suction to the pump. Disconnect the hose clamp from the suction port that goes through the wall of the pool remove the hose then unscrew the blue adapter on the inside of the pool there you will find a strainer / screen. Whatever gets pass the basket in the skimmer get's plugged up in that screen causing the pump to starve for water causing the LOW FLOW sensor to go off on the Saltwater pump.

Let me know if this helps any.

Low water flow

Low water flow is generally and indication that the filter is dirty / clogged. Remove the filter cartridge and see if the light goes out. Replace the filter if required.
