SOURCE: pool pump intex 51 pumps water but return flow is low

if you cartridge is completly clean then start by disconecting the out tube that goes to the pump housing
sometimes debris gets caught there entering your pump.
a little hair causes other things to back up

once you are satisfird that those 2 things are ready then close it all up and open the bleeder cap on top of the cartridge holder

Now let water in from the suction side
when water starts coming out of the bleeder cap then open the return side
Now turn on the puimp
let it run for 20 seconds and then close your bleeder

Should be working fine after that.

dont forget to leave the bleeder cap alone on the bottom of the canister unless you are draining the water from the canister to clean it. As soon as you are done close it back up

SOURCE: no water flow though pool pump

Check and see if all valves are turned in the appropriate positions. Sometimes homeowners forget to switch the valves from spa mode to pool mode or vice versa and wonder 'why isn't my pump pushing water?'. Another thing to consider is what type of pump you have. If you have an owners manual, check and see if you have a flooded suction pump or if it's self priming. You may need to dump water into the trap before seeing water flow through. You may also have faulty valves or check valves. Check your filter and make sure all positioning of valves are in proper place. If all else fails...call a pool professional. These small self performing tips are just something to consider to save some money in the long run in lieu of calling someone that may poke your eyes out with a service call and something as trivial as turning a valve. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: filter pump running hot and water is not

If your pool filter and pump are running not and not circulating, it sounds like either your pump is not primed properly, you have an impeller jammed/or broken, or you have something clogging the hose to the return line that is causing pressure to build up. Check all three of these and bet you will find your problem.

SOURCE: I have a Waterway SVL56

That means that the connection between the motor and the actual centrifugal pump is broken. This is terminal: replacing the broken part will cost you more than the price for a brand new pump. Just cut your losses and replace it.

Our hot tub will only heat when jets are on?


Depending on the design tubs and pools need water to be circulating before heater runs to prevent the heater from burning out. If the circulation pump runs constantly the heater should work any time but a plugged or restricted filter might not let it flow like it needs to.
If the pump only runs in the jet mode then it might be the way it is designed.
Try checking with the manufacturers website for an FAQ section.

Simple keys to a beautiful clean pool.


There are 3 keys to a clean swimming pool; filtration, circulation and chemistry. Not having the right amount of any one of these keys will soon cause the pool to be dirty. Filtration requires a filter that allows enough flow and catches any particles in the water. Circulation means enough water is circulating. Chemistry is having the chemicals to the right levels in the pool. The most important component to accomplish these keys is the pump. If the pump doesn't work then the filter doesn't work, the water is not circulating and since chlorine feeders need circulation to deliver enough chlorine to the pool, not having a working pump quickly causes the pool to go green.

Can the pool overflow from rain?


A pool will over flow in the rain, the pool pump is only for circulating water not for draining overflow , you can go to a local pool supply and buy a pump to hook to a garden hose and drain it partially, be aware that the pump runs on electric power and you want to be careful not to drain the pool below the skimmer level or you will end up replacing the pool pump motor

Digital read out....fault high ref pressure.


Verify circulating pump is on and that there are no water flow restrictions to the heat pump. Make sure all necessary valves are open or in the proper positions to allow proper water flow to the heat pump. Verify filter and skimmers are clean. Check for water level in the pool. This condition may also appear if the heat pump has not been operated for an extended period. To clear the condition, cycle the heat pump, on and off, up to 3 times. If this does not correct the problem, call for service.
