    I can't keep the pump primed and the water is getting hot. Could this mean that I have a leak in the line some where and if so how do I find the leak?

If this is a flooded suction and when it turns on it keeps pushing all the water out faster than it is coming in you may have a pump that is too big for the size of the line coming in.
also look to make sure you have nothing plugging the lines going into the front of the pump.

Prime


Hi to prime your pump you fill the strainer basket with water and make sure all connections are tight with no leaks. Once you seal the lid turn on your pump and it should prime. If you have an issue you can force water through the suction line by putting a hose in the skimmer and force the water through your suction line. Time to Open the Swimming Pool

I have a Shasta pool from 1996. I replaced the


either you have an air leak somewhere on the suction side or your impeller is very clogged. you can fill the pump with water and turn it on, it should try to pick up prime, right when it starts to pull in some water turn it off and try to listen for air leaks or water squirting out somewhere on the suction side. Also, remove the pump basket and try to feel the impeller to see it there is any debris in it. the main cause for a clogged impeller is a cracked or broken pump basket. Also, if the pump has run dry for any period of time, the threaded fitting on the suction side of the pump can shrink and cause a large enough air leak to keep the pump from priming.

My pool pump won't prime


If the pump is above the pool water level the it is unlikly that the tank will fill completely with valves open (which is ok).Most pumps are self priming and will pick up a prime with water level below suction inlet on strainer. Try starting on main drain again and slowly open skimmer line. Did you remove water from skimmer line and winterize(if in cold weather climate)during closing?.I know this sounds stupid, but make sure water level in pool is well into skimmer. If air situation remains after scspriggs' and these thoughts then prepare for a pressure test on skimmer line to determine location of leakage.

How to prime my Pool?


Prime is the term we use to state that the air has been mostly purged from the pump and the pump is moving water. When you have lost the prime, your pump is no longer pumping water through it. Sometimes it can be very difficult to regain the prime on the pump. This will tell you how to get the prime back in these difficult situations
