  1. I have a below ground swimming pool – it is approx 35′ x 25′ x 6′ – I am finding that my pump no longer has enough pressure to enable me to filter the dirt off the bottom of the pool (I may need a new pump!). However, I would like to consider buying an external pump for cleaning purposes. Please advise what is available and cost.

    BTW, how do I establish that my existing pump needs replacing – I have tried back wash/ closing valves/ continuous cleaning of filter box attached to pump. It is pulling but not much strength although sometimes it does actually draw well?
