Customer Question

i have a fibre glass pool supplied by ibiza piscines which has had to be repaired and has a new gel coat applied i moved the pump and filter set up to a new position because the floor was dipping since i joined up the pipes to and from the pool and changed the sand in the filter it appears to be circulating correctly on filter mode but the sand filter is much calmer than before during running also i have changed the spider gasket in the multiport valve because when i turned the valve to backwash and or rinse no water went out the waste pipe

Hello,
is it acting like a vacuum leak? The pump runs and water moves but there is no full flow...like it is sucking air?

dear billy i like your shiny coat there is a fair to good flow of water but the sand filter with chlorine tablets have not cleared the green in the pool i left the pool for a couple of days and by then the algae had settled to the bottom so i carefully started to vacuum out but the green came straight back into the pool via the pump and filter i know it is a simple system so it is frustrating maybe it would be better to talk it over on the phone as live in france let me know a suitable time thank you for your help miles
