Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

Pool pump cycles on/off

Just bought new house with existing above ground pool, trying to open it. Everything hooked up correctly, but when starting the pump it will only run for 15 to 30 seconds and shuts off, then starts again after about 45 seconds and repeats this cycle. I own a similar system in my main residence an have never experienced this. Oddly before I hooked the lines to the pump I tested it and it ran fine. ???Thanks !

I would run a feeder from the main breaker panel to a small breaker box near the pool pumps, so you have a disconnect near their location. Look at the drawing and see if you have any questions .. What is the amperage reading on the name plate label of each pump motor??

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.

SOURCE: Pump Cycles on and off. Runs for 10 to 15 seconds

Is this motor thermally protected? Are you running it on 240 VAC and the pump is set up for 240 VAC? (120 VAC- and 120 VAC?). Pump is on its own circuit, or one adequate to supply the proper volts, amps and watts? No extension cords involved?????????

The motor does this because it is over heating for some reason ... improper voltage comes to mind.

You say it starts but will not run ... a faulty run winding comes to mind (start circuit is evidently ok)

Overheating can als be caused by an obstruction in the suction or discharge ...

SOURCE: pool pump shutting off/tripping the circuit breaker

What kind of pump are you using?
Sounds like the Intex is restricting water flow there by heating up your pump and shutting it down..
You may need to re plumb everything to handle the flow.
Intex hoses and fittings are different than the industry standards just so the can make you buy from them
Do what ever it takes to get good flow

Brand new system... Code 90... Checked for air in hoses & loose hoses, changed pump filter, everything installed correctly... Help????


Make sure your flow sensor moves freely. Soak the unit in vinegar if it looks dirty
I would also try bleeding the system run your pump with the bleeder screw on top of the filter cartridge open a few turns Just enough to allow the water and air to flow do this for a minute or so and then tighten the screw

Plug the inlet & suction openings with provided plugs
Hook up the hoses.
Release vent screw from the top of the filter housing.
Remove hose plugs.
Start pump
when water comes out filter housing vent - close it.
check for proper flow.

Brand new 2009 model 8111 can't get filer to run


There is an air lock, so it seems. Leave filter off, on top of filter is a valve to let air escape. Keep this open until you get a stady stream of water from oulet, then close. Start pump. Not being a smart ****, besure that the water flow is correct. Skimmer to inlet side, return to pool.
