Make sure it is full of water, and there are no leaks and just let it run. It is a self priming pump and will pick up the prime after a few minutes.

Have deep well vetical sta rite pump both pipes in ground staying full of water will not pump press does not looose prime but wont build press


shut off pump breaker at the lowest faucet drain completely. Turn it back on. If this doesn't work, you have to change out the pressure valve on the side of the tank. it's not hard.

It wont hold its prime , changed out the foot valve and still wont hold its prime


If it's not leaking back through the foot valve, then it must be leaking out someplace else upstream of the pump. It's remotely possible that it's siphoning off from the draw downstream of the pump (if that is significantly lower in elevation than the pump) - but I don't think that could happen unless you had air leaking into it someplace. Just food for thought. I don't know the ups and downs of your piping.

I had to take the motor out and put it back together now its not getting water what do I have to do. The motor works fine


If this is a self priming pump you will just have to fill the pot with water. If not you will have to open a valve and force some water through the system to prime the pump. This being done, if you still have no water you may have a suction leak keeping the pump from priming and may need a repairman at that point. Good luck.
