The Aquastaser relies on water pressure from your pool pump and filter. If there is not adequate pressure entering the Aquastaser, it may not function properly. If you feel that the water pressure coming out of your pool wall jets is lower than normal, this may indicate several possible issues:
- Your pool filter most likely needs to be cleaned.
- If you have a cartridge filter, remove it and clean according to manufacture instructions.
- If you have a sand or d.e. filter, backwash according to manufacture instructions.
- NOTE: When cleaning your filter, be sure to direct water flow away from the Aquastaser using a 3-Port Ball Valve (if installed) or you may even remove the Aquastaser during cleaning by unscrewing the union fittings connecting the PVC pipes to the Aquastaser. Also, always remember to flush water away from the Aquastaser for 30 seconds after regular filter maintenance, before restoring flow to the Aquastaser. Failure to do this may clog the Aquastaser.
- Your Aquastaser may be clogged. If you or someone who maintains your pool system may have performed filter maintenance and did not follow the steps above, your Aquastaser may be clogged with small particles or debris.
- Remove your aquastaser by unscrewing the union fittings.
- Flush your Aquastaser with water from a clean garden hose by spraying water from the end of the Aquastaser where water normally exits to your pool.
- Do NOT spray water from the end where water normally enters.
- Restore you Aquastaser and check if pressure has improved.
