May need cleaning of the filter, impeller, etc. How much saw dust? If only a little likely no damage. If 50 pounds, the lines may be clogged, filter will need to be cleaned many times. Call your local pool clearer or supply store to better advise you. If the wood it toxic, you might also have problems. You will need the type of saw dust, regular, treated, CCA, etc and how much wood dust.

SOURCE: onga pool pump running but not drawing water from pool

Take out the pump pot basket and stick your finger in the hole towards the motor (make sure the motor won't kick on!!). What you should feel is the impeller. It has five grooves in the face of it and each one needs to be cleaned of foilage and debris. With every hole clogged in the impeller you lose 20% of your motors effeciency. With whisperflow brand the pump pot basket is poorly designed where debris like pine needles go straight through.

SOURCE: pacer does not run on INTEX pool pump, no

make sure to check the diaphragm inside, check for deformity or debris stuck in it. You can take the unit apart just below the wagon wheel and push the white tube downward to expose the diaphragm.

I have an air leak in intake line


Question:

What do I do if my pool/spa pump is loosing suction or prime?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool Pump Losing Suction or Prime If your Swimming Pools Filter system looses Prime, it is caused by one of the following conditions.
Note: The lost of suction/prime is caused a leak which in turn sucks air into the system. The lost of suction/prime will be anywhere from the Main Pool Skimmer(s) to the Pool Pump. It will NOT be from the Pool Pump to the Pools Main Return(s).
1) First make sure that your water level is high enough so that the skimmer is not sucking air.
2) Check the Pump Pot Housing Lid Seal and be certain that its completely sealing and is not
Sucking air into the system. Check the lid for cracks. If either condition is true, replace the Pump Pot Lid Seal and/or entire lid
3) Check all fittings, clamps and hoses from the pools skimmer to the Pools Pump Pot Housing for wear, tightness and leaks.
4) Check Pool Pump Pot Housing for cracks.
If everything aforementioned in good working order, the next thing to check is the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal and the Pumps Impeller and finally the pump.

5) While the Pool Pump Motor is running, carefully inspect the area where the Pump Pot Housing attaches to the Pump Motor. See if there is any water leaking. Next, spray the area with water and see if the water is sucked into the Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
6) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half and inspect the Pump Motor Impeller. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged.
7) Re-inspect the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal by standing the partially disassembled upright, with the Pump Motor towards the ground. Pour water over the impeller and into the cavity. See if the water leaks thru to the outside of the Pump Pot Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
8) Remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts

Who often should I backwash sandfilter


I would let it run for about a minute depending on how clogged it was. Our backwash drain is very visible so we can see when the dirty water has left the filter, usually about a minute or two.

My Bosch 4000 table saw will not stay running, it starts then it will just stop. it is not tripping the breaker, any sujections?


The motor control electronc control board ($40.00)is the most likely culprit. When you replace the electronic speed control board be sure and replace the brushes also as they will have very tiny pitting damage ($5.00)
What happens is that when the motor cooling port sucks in the saw dust contaminants the motor brushes and armature develop an intermittent contact which damages the operational characteristics of the control board - so blow motor out often with compressed air to remove contaminants. Don't ever operate this saw without a vacuum saw dust evacuation system (Shop vac,Etc.)!!

Notebook has fallen in to a swiming pool and still it is running, but not connecting to the wireless.


You are lucky it still is.
Dry it a bit more with a dryer and make sure the wireless switch is turned on(if you have one).
Apart from that water might have damaged the wireless card.
