Your pool pump impeller is what creates the flow from your pool to your filter and returns out . This post will show you how to clean your swimming pool pump impeller. Your swimming pool pump impeller is what creates the flow from your pool to your filter and returns out . When the impeller is clogged it reduces the flow. A clear indication of reduced flow from a clogged impeller is… your pump pot might not have full prime. This means your pump basket will not be full with water.
Another indication that you might have a clogged impeller is your pool pump gauge might be reduced. So if it normally set at 30 and it's running at 20, this could be an indication of a clogged impeller or your vacuum might not be working as efficiently or as as normal.
