Why is my filter noisy?

  1. Excessive water flow due to an oversized pump or undersized backwash valve may be the problem. To test, partially hold your hand in front of any return fitting or partially close a valve after the last piece of equipment. If the noise quiets down, this will confirm that the problem is excessive flow. Depending on the situation this can be solved by downsizing the pump, upsizing the backwash valve, or installing smaller eyeball fittings on the returns in the pool.
  2. Too much air in the system. This is normally caused by an air leak on the suction side of your equipment. If you notice air pockets in your pump trap or if you open your air relief valve on your filter and an excessive amount of air needs to be discharged, then you most likely have a suction side air leak.
