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.

I have a hayward s166t filter, guage reads 0 and sight glass water does not swirl when backwashed


Does it show pressure when in "Filter" mode?

If not, then your pump is either not primed, Impeller is plugged, or there is not enough water in the pool, you are sucking air.

Probably need new pump if the impeller broke.
If impeller broke, then motor will run, but no water circulates
Call pool company.

check the impeller for debris. you will have to take the metal band off that connects the wet end to the seal plate. inspect the impeller for debris. lube all o-rings and reassemble. if that does not work, investigate a blockage in the suction side plumbing.

Hello, I have a pentair whisperflo 1hp pump and it seem to have very little water pressure coming into the basket and my skimmer has very little suction as well. Any suggestions Thank you, Ali


turn the pump off, remove the lid and pump basket. reach your finger inside to see if there is any debris caught in the impeller. MAKE SURE the pump cannot come on at any point while you're working on it.
That should do the trick, if not, investigate an air leak on the suction side of the pump. Causes: bad lid 0-ring, threads on suction fitting leaking air in, or if there is a union on the suction side, make sure it's tight and the o-ring is in good condition (add lube as necessary).

When our above ground automatic pool cleaner is contected(zodiac manta) our pool pump keeps filling with water and the vaccum does not move. The hoses are fine and we have changed the diaphram just...


I think you meant that the pump keeps filling with air. You may have an air leak on the suction side of the pump. If you turn the pump off, you should not see any water leaking out of anywhere, if you see any water drip near the suction side of the pump, you should consider that an air leak and repair it.

The problem you're having seems to be an air leak. when you connect the manual vacuum or if the system is running normally, there is not nearly as much suction that is created as when the zodiac is plugged in. The air is forcefully pulled into the system when increased suction is created.

Try replacing the lid o-ring and investigate any possible places on the suction side of the pump that could be a potential leak.

Hope this helps.

My new Optiflow pump surges..............it seems to not be pulling the water thru the sand filter and discharging as it should. Sand filter gauge fluxuates between 0 and 3 lbs of pressure.


it sounds like you may have a suction side leak on the pump. check the lid o-ring and the suction side fittings to see if there may be a possibility of air being sucked into the pump and causing it to act like it's picking up prime and then losing it.

The pump works well to the pool but once we hook up the vaccum it has low water pressure


THIS IS WHAT VACUUMES DO THEY RESTICT WATER FLOW, YOU NEED THE PIECE THAT ATTACHES TO THE HOSE TO REGULATE THE AMOUNT OF SUCTION. YOUR LOCAL POOL SUPPLY SHOULD HAVE IT ,, AROUND 10 BUCKS .. KOOL FIX .. JAY THE POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FL HIT THE YES BUTTON IF I WAS OF HELP THNX J

My pressure guage is reading 0 when the pump is on. The water level of the pool was low so I think there may be air in the system. What can I do?


First of all fill the pool up. Then wrap a rag around a hose and force water into the suction line. If you have problems still, you may need to replumb the pump or change the seals.
