If the pool water level gets too low, the pump will suck in air, leading to low water pressure in the filter system. To fix this, check the skimmer opening in the pool. If the water is below the skimmer, that’s why you have a low pressure in the pool filter. You’ll need to top up the pool with water to the ideal level.
