I have a 2 yr old IG pool. It has always had great pressure and circulation and I have never had to skim it. Since I opened it, the pressure is extremely low. I have really noticed it because I now skim several times daily and the center of the pool seems stagnant no matter how I direct the flows. The DE filter reads 10psi which is normal. I have taken apart the filter and cleaned it twice and had the pool company come to look at it. They claim that it is running at normal pressure but it is definately only about 1/3 of what it was previous years. The suction going into the 2 skimmer baskets seems to be strong, its just the return that seems to be the problem. Could it be that something happened to the motor and it is not pushing the water out as fast as it previously was? Or something else? The pool is definately not losing water so I have ruled out leaks in the return lines.
