Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.

Prime


Hi to prime your pump you fill the strainer basket with water and make sure all connections are tight with no leaks. Once you seal the lid turn on your pump and it should prime. If you have an issue you can force water through the suction line by putting a hose in the skimmer and force the water through your suction line. Time to Open the Swimming Pool

My pool heater rheem said clean filter and strainer. not turning on heat what should i do..to solve the problem and tell me how do i clean the strainer where it is location...


They are referring to the strainer basket inside the filtration pump, and the pool filter system itself. The indication is either this basket is full of debris or the pool filter is so dirty you do not have enough water flowing through the heater. A safety device in the heater is shutting down the heater to prevent damage. None of the parts you named are inside the heater.

Not pumping strong. Filter pressure gauge is going low.


Could be air entering the pump on the suction side - dead giveaway is a stream of bubbles entering the pool, possible causes are damage/faulty pipe joint, leak at strainer basket - is the o-ring clean and in place, is the lid craked? Other possibility is leaves etc caught in the impeller caused by damaged or missing strainer basket.

My filter keeps losing pressure on my de filter to my swimming poolit runs good for about an hour then it slowly decreases


There's a few things to check:
1. Backwash thoroughly and reload your filter with fresh DE.
2. Clean, inspect your pump strainer basket, housing, lid and lid gasket. (also while the pump basket is out, reach into the pump inlet port and check for debris..this can cause what you're experiencing). Remove any debris with your fingers and then reinstall basket, gasket and lid.
3. When putting the gasket and lid on, be sure the gasket isn't hardened, or cracked. Check the lid for damage as well.
4. Check all exposed plastic plumbing for obvious leaks.
Hope this solves your pressure drop... let me know if you need more help.

Why is my filter system losing prime?


It could be one of these issues with your pool filter. Try these solutions. If none of them work, let me know and I will do some more research.

1. D.E. coated with normal accumulation of pool dirt, algae, etc.
Solution: Bump your filter.

2. Pump strainer basket or skimmer basket is clogged.
Solution: Clean

3. Pump impeller vanes clogged.
Solution: Cleaning with a stiff wire brush through the pump strainer opening will usually work. Alternate method would be to disassemble and clean.

4. Air Leak on suction side of pump.
Soultion: Check cover gasket, hand knobs, hose, clamps, etc. Replace or tighten as necessary.

What do you do about a service strainer notification on a rp2100 digital


Clean the strainer basket on your pump and clean your filter. If this does not help you will need to check your impeller expecally if your basket has any cracks in it. Also if you have a by-pass valve between the inlet and outlet pipes going to the heater that should be 80-90% closed. Hope this helps, good luck.

Turned off hayward pump 3/4HP to clean out leaf basket and when turned back on would not come on. The pump is a little warm, so do you have any ideas or suggestions?


Quite often it is the starter capacitor on the pump motor. Easily repaired or replaced by a motor shop or swimming pool service company.

How do i drain my pool with a hayward variflow pump?


To Flush out the filter with the backwash setting. The backwash setting releases trapped particles from the filter back into the swimming pool. You may need to alternate between the rinse and backwash settings until the water runs clear in order to unblock your filtration system and flush out clogs. To Rinse away dislodged items from the backwash setting. The rinse setting flushes clean water through the pipes and carries away any particles or clogs freed during the backwashing. To Drain the pool select waste on the multiport valve. This sends the water directly to the drain rather than back into the swimming pool. Close the filtration equipment and stop the pump with the closed setting. You should only use the closed setting when you turn the pump off. This function allows you to remove the strainer basket, clean the filter tank and perform other swimming pool maintenance on the filtration system.
