You probably need to replace the air bleed assembly or just the pressure guage, depending where the water is coming from.

Lose press on retrn to pool using Hayward S166t with brand new veri flow pump attached. I back wash and pressure restored is excellent but within 15 or twenty min drops off again.


what is the water like?
Dirty? Green? Murky? Cloudy?
Something is clogging the filter!

Let me ask this, you said: "Pressure drops Off" ???
Do you have a pressure guage on the filter?
Does the pressure increase? Or does it Decrease?
This will be an important piece of information!!!!
  • If pressure increases on the pressure gauge...
    • then filter is working and filtering out dirt and filter is clogging up.
  • If pressure decreases on the filters pressure gauge,
    • then the basket, or literally anything that is decreasing or stopping the water from getting to the pump, or more precisely to the internal impeller of the pump!
Most commonly - plugged impeller, baskets need to be checked, enough water in pool? etc.

My inground pool filter guage is fairly new and registering 0 even though pool seems to be running fine


if you are sure water is circulating (check to see if water is being sucked into the skimmer suction port or you can open your air relief valve on top of your filter and water squirts out,) then you will know that all works, but if pressure gauge is "0", then replace your pressure gauge.

Water in ec-40 pressure gauge


Water in the pressure gauge indicates a faulty gauge. It will need to be replaced. They usually run $10-15.

Filter pressure is 0


I'm assuming the pump runs, and the water is circulating from the skimmer back to the pool. Do have the pump running when checking pressure? Second be sure "filter" is selected on multi-port valve. Third, remove gauge with pump off and test gauge with compressed air and be sure gauge is working (don't overpressure gauge depending on gauge scale) If gauge is defective replace. If you still have no pressure on gauge, you might be "bypassing" the filter media (sand) due to a broken pipe from the bottome of the multi-port valve. You sould still see some pressure though as your pump should have some back pressure to the pool.

My sand filter is showing 0 pressure on the pressure gauge, yet I still have great flow? It is showing no pressure on any of the settings--It was working just fine last year.


If flow is good, one of two things. Unscrew gauge and see if hole is plugged. With gauge out, momentarily turn pool on and make sure water squirts out of hole. If no, hole is plugged, If yes, bad gauge.

Problem with Convertible Jet Pump 3/4HP RedLion - drawing water 300' from lake to cabin - when the pump is on it holds 50# pressure by itself but when tap is turned on the pressure drops to 30# then you...


If I understand you correctly this is what you have:

- A pump that draws water from a lake 300 feet from lake to your cabin (I assume the pump is at the cabin)

- The pump kicks on to maintain pressure in a tank that distributes water to faucets in the cabin. The pump only turns on to pressurize the tank when water is being used (I am assuming).

- When you turn on tap, pressure in the pressure tank drops to 30 psi, then you hear water sucking from the tank to tap and flow stops at tap. Then the pump finally kicks back on and pressures tank to 23 psi.

- The pump is not used regularly.

If water flow stops when the pressure tank is reading 25 psi, then likely the real pressure is 0 psi and pressure gauge is reading wrong. If this gauge is tied into a switch that starts and stops the pump, then this is probably your problem. You may have partial blockage in your pressure gauge/switch that is causing gauge to move too slowly to keep up with the actual pressure changes when water is being used. Ore the pressure gauge/switch may be broken. Pressure gauges are notorious for reading pressure when there is none. If you can unplug the pump and disconnect the pressure gauge/switch and check for blockage in the ports you should start there. You mentioned that this worked good for the last two summers, if if sits unused for long periods, it could promote bio-growth, rust and/or sediment in the connection to the pressure gauge. If you find blockage, remove it and flush it out. Reinstall the pressure gauge/switch and try it again.

One other possibility is clogged strainer(s) / filter(s) in the water lines. It would not hurt to pull and check/clean any strainers / filters in the system including before the pump. I would even check at the lake for a strainer where the water enters the suction line to the cabin.


I would not assume that the pump is the problem yet.

Hope this helps.

Hi sstanl, Is your pump output or flow normal back to pool? if there is no water flowing through system you will get no expulsion of air or pressure reading on gauge. If pump is working then you probably have a clogged air release valve and maybe a clogged gauge. Just remove air relief assembly from filter top, remove gauge and clear any obstructions in parts. You should easily be able to blow air thru assy with gauge removed. Teflon tape the components and snug them back in their places. restart your pump and voila! air will come out when prime is established.
