Is your filter in? I'm asking for the simple reason that your running at 2-3lbs, if you were running at 25+ then I would say your having a restriction problem somewhere. (Filter, skimmers, maindrains and so on.) Is this a new or old pool? Did you have a pool company maintaining it? where are you from (weather)? maybe a suction line has a hole or crack. This would be a good one to look in to. Did you pressure test all lines?

Check your pump impeller to see if it is clogged with debris. This will cause it to lose operating pressure. Also if you have a bleed line on your filter open it slightly to see if air will blow out. If it does, you have air trapped in your lines and this indicates that you have an air leak somewhere.

The question should be do you have excess pressure or little or no pressure?


Actually, you may have a downstream restriction. Were you cleaning your pool? I did and the DE filter was damaged so it was bypassing actually filtering anything; salt water generator became clogged. I heard the pump sound change so I went to check, reading nearly zero on the filter but pump was working (would self-prime). Removed and cleaned the salt water generator ... pressure problem solved.

Hot water barely comes out of faucet cold water works fine how do i fix?

If shut off the hot water valve then you take off your supply line from your hot water valve to your faucet and then turn your hot water valve on slowly (with of course a bucket or something to collect the water under it) and if you can see you have water pressure and flow then most likely the problem would be in your faucet on the hot side. If you have no pressure or flow when you turn the hot valve on then it could be debris plugging your hot water pipe or your hot water service valve (angle stop, straight stop) which older galvanized pipes are known to do so. To fix the problem you would need to find out where the problem is then either fix or replace the faucet or replace the angle/straight stop or try back flushing the hot water pipe and or replace the pipe with pex or copper pipe.

Why would a raft lose its firmness when placed in cold water and how could the problem be fixed?

Boyle's Law says the temperature, pressure and volume of a gas are all related - if the temperature of a gas decreases, the pressure will also decrease. You can't "fix" the problem because it's not a problem, but a basic law of physics. You can get around it by pumping the raft up harder than you think it needs to be; when the pressure goes down it'll still be hard. Or you can put the raft in the water then pump it back up when the temperature stabilizes.
