Why is my Pressure Gauge not working?

POOL FILTER HAS NO PRESSUREpressure-gauges.jpg

Okay so the pressure gauge should be reading zero when:

  • The pump is off
  • or the valve is set of recirculate or drain to waste

Other possible causes:

  • the pressure gauge hand is slightly stuck,
    • tap the pressure gauge to see if it moves
  • there is a blockage in the gauge assembly
    • turn the pump off,
    • remove the pressure gauge
    • push a small stick or screwdriver down the hole to clear out anything that make be blocking.
  • Water is not moving back (through the returns) into the pool as per normal - something is blocked
    • Clear the pump basket
    • Clear the skimmer basket
    • Impeller on pump may be blocked
    • Piping may have a blockage
    • Clogged Skimmer
    • Closed or broken valve before the pump
    • Pump may have and air leak
    • You may have an air lock

However air Releases do stop working after a period of time and it is a pretty common part to be replacing on your filter, these are available here:  Pressure Gauges
