Hayward super pump won't prime

Priming issues are almost always due to a bad gasket or loose fitting.
  1. Remove the leaf trap lid. Examine the gasket for debris, cuts or folds that might prevent a tight seal.
  2. Remove and examine the winter plugs for proper seal.
  3. Remove, re-tape or putty the threaded fitting directly in from of the pump.
  4. Check all unions, fittings and connections from the skimmer and main drain to the pump.
  5. On rare occasions the impeller may be impacted with debris preventing water flow. Remove the four screws holding the motor to the wet end exposing the impeller and examine it. Hayward impellers are also know to break at the shaft. This will sound like the pump is operating but never pumping water.
  6. If everything looks normal, try pouring water over the entire wet end while priming. This will sometimes allow water to fill a void you missed. The pump will probably loose prime again until the issue is corrected.

Filter has clean hoses and new sand, but water return is still low. valve cover has debris in non-removable housing.

Does not sound like a product failure. But more info would help so I'm making some assumptions. Double check the hose connections going into the filter are in the proper location. The hose from the pump will plug into the highest port and the return to the pool will be the lower port that does not have the sight glass. Make sure you are only vac'ing on the "filter" or "waste" setting. Never vacuum your pool on "backwash". If this is not your problem then look to the pump for an impeller blockage. Lining the pump basket with a nylon stocking will keep debris like cottonwood from making it through the basket and clogging impellers and filters.

Bad drain pump relay?

Possibly a foreign object in the pump that when disturbed by water flow is blocking the impeller. I once found a sewing pin in the pump of a machine. It would sit in a recess in the pump and sometimes jam the impeller when disturbed by the flow.

by Osko Pool n Spa If your Swimming Pool or Spa Pump Motor is humming and/or has very little or no water flow, please follow the following directions.
1) Remove the pump motor from the system.
2) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half.
3) Check for any foreign obstructions which would jam the Impeller and remove it
4) Next, inspect the Pump Motor Impeller itself. (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 and requires replacement.
5) Next, 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 and need replacement.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts.

No cooling water shooting from the visual indicator port - less than 6 month old 115 short shaft motor purchased new from dealer

if you do not see water shooting out, there are a couple of things to check, open the case and remove the hose and check for debris --- the fitting itself could also be blocked, clear hose and fitting and re-install -- test --
if no water is flowing after that, then there could be a chance that the water pump impeller is bad, ( note: if water impeller is bad the motor will get hot and the over heat light will come on ' red ' ), turn off and replace the impeller.

I have a two cylinder volvo penta saildrive 2002 model, their seems to be little or no water coming from the exhaust when the motor is running. i have recently antifouler the leg and cleared the water...

Check your impeller in the seawater pump ( at the front of the engine )
If the impeller blades stays even lightly bent after removal, change the impeller.
Check for obstructions in the hoses.
Remove the water hose going to the exhaust.
Run the engine, if here you have a good water flow ( more than at the exhaust itself ) the the exhaust mixer is obstructed. Try to clean out with HCl acid. USE ACID resistand GLOVES. Rince twice as well after the obstruction is gone...

The suction and water flow is greatly reduced

It's possible to wear out the impeller. To remove the impeller: after removing the motor and impeller from the housing, you remove the cover from the electric end. Carefully find a flat on the shaft that usually fits an open end wrench close to where the shaft goes into the motor. Not on the end of the shaft where the spring thing is. Hold the shaft with a wrench while turning the impeller, don't let the wrench break anything. Double check the threads on the new impeller to see if they are left-handed. The impeller should unscrew in the direction of the motor's rotation.
Put in a new seal while you're there.

I have a hobart sr24h dishwasher that does not rinse or wash with any food off the dishes.

Check inside your wash arms for debris. Remove them and clean them out.

Otherwise, the wash impellor may be bad.
