My sm 909-nhw 14 1" pump just stopped sucking water when I was hooking it back to the filter. It did not loose the prime and the power source was working. Could it need a new impeller?


Hi Pamela:
Several possibles:
- Power supply - does the pump motot actually run
- Pump function - if the motor is running, is the pump spinning?
- Prime - did it trick you and lose the prime?

IF THE PUMP IS SPINNING, IT IS PRIMED, THE VALVES ARE OPEN, AND INTAKE WATER IS AVAILABLE, THE ONLY REASON I CAN THINK THAT IT WON'T WORK IS THAT THE IMPELLER SHAFT IS BROKEN.

I have an air leak in intake line


Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is loosing suction or prime?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool Pump Losing Suction or Prime If your Swimming Pools Filter system looses Prime, it is caused by one of the following conditions.
Note: The lost of suction/prime is caused a leak which in turn sucks air into the system. The lost of suction/prime will be anywhere from the Main Pool Skimmer(s) to the Pool Pump. It will NOT be from the Pool Pump to the Pools Main Return(s).
1) First make sure that your water level is high enough so that the skimmer is not sucking air.
2) Check the Pump Pot Housing Lid Seal and be certain that its completely sealing and is not
Sucking air into the system. Check the lid for cracks. If either condition is true, replace the Pump Pot Lid Seal and/or entire lid
3) Check all fittings, clamps and hoses from the pools skimmer to the Pools Pump Pot Housing for wear, tightness and leaks.
4) Check Pool Pump Pot Housing for cracks.
If everything aforementioned in good working order, the next thing to check is the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal and the Pumps Impeller and finally the pump.

5) While the Pool Pump Motor is running, carefully inspect the area where the Pump Pot Housing attaches to the Pump Motor. See if there is any water leaking. Next, spray the area with water and see if the water is sucked into the Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
6) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half and inspect the Pump Motor Impeller. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged.
7) Re-inspect the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal by standing the partially disassembled upright, with the Pump Motor towards the ground. Pour water over the impeller and into the cavity. See if the water leaks thru to the outside of the Pump Pot Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
8) Remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts

10000 gal pump


as with any pool pump they have to prime themselves,, close up the unit as it was before,, and turn it on,, remember that water is also the cooling agent for these pumps, check to see that its pumping water as before,, ( yours may even have a place to prime it,, Look for an easy access prime hole in the pump unit itself )

I think your impeller may be stuck OR your start capacitor has failed. Your pump is going off on over load because it cannot turn or cannot start.

My Hayward 2 hp pump basket water level drops to about half after the pump turns off. Is there an air leak? No water shoots out when pump is running. Will this damage my pump?


Yes, there is an air leak somewhere.

Only if you are using a timer and the pump fails to prime when the timer turns it on and it runs a long time in that condition. If someone turns it on, be sure it primes and you are fine.

Pool pump won't prime. Impeller replaced, worked for a couple of days. I changed the filter now same as original problem won't prime. I thought perhaps it was clogged; however since it was running and...


sounds like a priming problem. look at the check valve in front of the pump in the suction line. sounds as if it is loosing its prime so you don't have enough water close enough to the pump to get it primed.
