Jabsco toilet fails to fill


Was the toilet "Winterized" last fall? If so, have you assured that any plug in the clean water intake has been removed? If NOT -- are you sure the pump has not been frozen and internally damaged by ice? The pump is a simple device which rarely fail unless its inlet is blocked, or the pump seals or body are damaged - usually by freezing.

Hello, Our Flotec Shallow well Jet is installed in our basement a distance ( perhaps 50 feet or so from the well casing outside in the yard. The pump was installed as a replacement for a worn jet pump...


Hi, Tom, W/D here.
You shouldn't really need a check valve as the foot valve is in effect a check valve.
Next time that you are near the pump when it kicks on and you are using no water, let it achieve full pressure and kick off. Close the discharge valve, isolating the pump and suction line. Watch the pressure gauge. If the pressure falls, you either have a leak in the suction line, possibly a leak at the well head (sucking air), a leak in the casing riser pipe or bad foot valve.
If the pressure holds steady, open the discharge valve and note the pressure. If it falls immediately upon opening the valve, the leak would be on the house side if the pump. Look then for any sources of water usage (ice maker, drips in the tub, water from the pop-off valve at the water heater, etc.).
Best regards, and good luck.
If I can be of any further assistance, please post back.

My pool pump won't prime


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.
