Question about Sta Rite Pool & Spa

Sta Rite Pool Pump

Ran my pump for 24 hrs. after cleaning the filter. Got up the next morning and the pump sounded as if it was running, but when I got closer realized that there was no water running through the system and the pressure gauge was at 0. Checked pool level, it is little more than half way up the tiles. Filter is clean. Ran hose through the system (the pump) and the water returns back into the pool, so don't seem to be a blockage. Turned the pump off several times and restarted it to see if the pump would start pumping the water through the system No Luck. No suction, no water flowing through the system, and the pressure gauge still reads 0. The pump sounds like before possibly just a little quieter. Please Help!

Probably need new pump if the impeller broke.
If impeller broke, then motor will run, but no water circulates
Call pool company.

SOURCE: Pool pump will not fill back up

It sounds like you are sucking air into the pump. Make sure strainer baskets and pump baskets are clear, and the valves are in the right position. Also check the water level in the pool, and make sure that the pump is not sucking the skimmer dry. Next try lubricating the gasket on the pump lid, or if it is in bad shape (flattened/cracking) replace it. If this does not solve the problem put silicone around the inlet to the pump (silicone is a temporary fix that could last days or months--for best results replumb with teflon tape and sealant). If all that fails you could have debris stuck in the impeller.

SOURCE: Our Jaccuzzi Magnum Force pump extremely low pressure

Giving it a good cleaning probably clogged the pump impeller. If you vac'd the pool and the pump basket was packed with debrie it probably passed through and clogged. Split the pump and inspect the eye of the impeller. Low pressure means low flow.

SOURCE: Help low pressure in pool pump and filter

I can relate so well to your problem. My pool is surrounded by pines and deodora trees... all the needles seem to find their way through the baskets, strainers and into the inlet of the pump. It became a daily routine of having to reach into the inlet and clean the debris if I wanted a filtered pool.
Here' s a solution that will work!
Purchase an extra debris scoop ...the kind you put on the pole and scoop debris from the bottom of the pool.
Cut the net out of the frame and wrap the netting around the skimmer's debris basket and secure it with an oversized rubber band or zip ties, then replace the basket back in the skimmer.
Your skimmer will keep the debris out of the pump!
This will make a world of difference in your pump's pressure!
Give it a try and see if you're not working better!
