Help low pressure in pool pump and filter

Hi I have a sta-rite dura glass 2 pump with hayward sand filter. I just installed a new water heater last september. The heater keeps getting lo error code (not enough pressure) I noticed air bubbles in my pool from the jets on and off. I changed the O ring on pump and changed all the sand in the filter. The pressure gauge on the filter will go from zero to 4 at the most then will go back down to zero. My heater was running fine last year. If one or two leaves got past the basket from the pump would that affect it.Pls help I'm so frustrated. Thanks in advance

I can relate so well to your problem. My pool is surrounded by pines and deodora trees... all the needles seem to find their way through the baskets, strainers and into the inlet of the pump. It became a daily routine of having to reach into the inlet and clean the debris if I wanted a filtered pool.
Here' s a solution that will work!
Purchase an extra debris scoop ...the kind you put on the pole and scoop debris from the bottom of the pool.
Cut the net out of the frame and wrap the netting around the skimmer's debris basket and secure it with an oversized rubber band or zip ties, then replace the basket back in the skimmer.
Your skimmer will keep the debris out of the pump!
This will make a world of difference in your pump's pressure!
Give it a try and see if you're not working better!

Just installed a new pool pump. runs quiet, but does not seem to "pump"


Check the gate valves before and after the pump to make sure they are open all the way and to make sure the body of water is full enough so the pump does not cavitate the pump.

How much sand do I need for 3/4 hp dura glas pump?


I would suggest 50lbs. If you filled it to capacity, it greatly reduces your water flow.
