Question about Hayward 3/4hp Super Pump Inground Pool Pump 115/230 Volt # Sp2605x7
I'm opening our pool for the season and i got the pump to prime once with the main drain only i slowly opened the skimmer line and it was doing fine until i had it all the way open..air got sucked into the line and it lost suction... now when i try to fill up the basket with water to prime it ,it just continuously runs into the pool and is slowly filling it up...... please help me!!!!!!
As previous poster said get water above skimmer line to keep from pulling in air. With the multi-port valve in closed position, I fill the filter with the water hose first, then replace filter cap. With the intake valve set to skimmer, I fill the pump basket with a water hose until it will take no more. Then replace pump basket cover. Then take the garden hose running full blast and stick it down the skimmer. Then I set the multi-port valve to 'filter' and turn on pump.

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.
