The pump does not need to be on during the fill process. You don't need to turn the pump on until the water level gets to the middle of the skimmer. The skimmer pulls water out of the pool to power the pump. It then goes through the filter and out the returns (jets) into the pool. If there is not enough water going to the pump (through the skimmer), the pump will run dry and burn up.

There won't be any structural problems and you will notice the difference more than anyone else. If you redo the pool next year it will help to set each leg on a patio brick so it won't settle.

I'm trying to drain a pool that's Ben sitting for years full of nasty water. Pump works and operates but the fill pot on the pump itself will not stay full


Sounds like you're trying to pull water from skimmer and main drain. Soon as the level goes down, it sucks air from skimmer. Turn off skimmer line. If that's not possible, then cut off input side of pump(front pipe) and run new line to pool. Just lay it on top of ground and keep it below top by a couple of feet. This will stop all the **** on the bottom from plugging up the pump.

Just replaced my Emerson 2hp pool motor. Turned on new motor all is working fine but water isn't filling the basket?


First of all you need to fill the pot with water. it is best to pour a bucket in or use a hose and turn the pump on and off real quick a couple times to **** some water into the pump. Once you do that fill the basket as much as possible and quickly put the lid on and turn on (make sure your lid o-ring is there and in good shape. lubricate it with pool lube so it's wet but not all gooped up). when you turn the pump on you should see water either splash, or at least start trickling into the pot. if you see water splash in, but then go dry again, or if it just trickles but doesn't prime after about 20 or 30 seconds, then you may very likely have an air leak on the suction side. Make sure your lid is sealed, the pipe goin into pump is not loose or leaking air, and make sure the pool cleaner hose is not out of the water, or the skimmer sucking air. If the pipe coming into the pump is sucking air or you suspect it might be try wrapping black electrical tape tightly all around the joint (where it threads into the pump). This is temporary troubleshooting step but works great. If there is a union or a Jandy valve where the pipe comes into the pump check o-rings and all joints for leaks.

How to open pool, fill sand filter with water?


I happen to have a copy of the users manual for this pool filter. These are the instructions for operating your filter.

1. Be sure correct amount of filter sand media is in tank and
that all connections have been made and are secure.
2. Depress Vari-Flo control valve handle and rotate to
BACKWASH* position. (To prevent damage to control valve
seal, always depress handle before turning.)
3. Prime and start pump according to pump instructions (be
sure all suction and return lines are open), allowing the filter
tank to fill with water.
WARNING: ALL SUCTION AND
DISCHARGE VALVES MUST BE OPEN WHEN
STARTING THE SYSTEM. FAILURE TO DO
SO COULD CAUSE SEVERE PERSONAL
INJURY.
Once water flow is steady out the waste line, run the pump for
at least 2 minutes. The initial back-washing of the filter is
recommended to remove any impurities or fine sand particles
in the sand media.
4. Turn pump off and set valve to RINSE position. Start pump
and operate until water in sight glass is clear—about 1/2 to 1
minute. Turn pump off, set valve to FILTER position and
restart pump. Your filter is now operating in the normal filter
mode, filtering particles from the pool water.
5. Adjust pool suction and return valves to achieve desired
flow. Check system and filter for water leaks and tighten
connections, bolts, nuts, as required.
6. Note the initial pressure gauge reading when the filter is
clean. (It will vary from pool to pool depending upon the
pump and general piping system). As the filter removes dirt
and impurities from the pool water, the accumulation in the
filter will cause the pressure to rise and flow to diminish.
When the pressure gauge reading is 8-10 PSI (0.55-0.69
BAR) higher than the initial "clean" pressure you noted, it is
time to backwash (clean) the filter (see BACKWASH under
Filter Control Valve Functions.)

I am looking for the most energy efficient way to run a 10,000 gallon indoor pool 365 days a year. Would i need a timer to optimize my electricity savings with the use of a Pentair IntelliFlo 4x160 pump or...


You run a pool pump based on pumping volume compared to pool volume and long enough to turn the water over frequently enough to keep it balanced and clear.

You should have no need to run it 24 hours a day to accomplish that since the pool is indoors and safe from the effects of weather and sunlight.

What you will want to do is determine the minimum amount of time then the pump needs to operate to keep the water balanced and clear based on fill water makeup, your chemical choices and bather loads and then set the timer to run the system for that amount of time and the pump for the speed required.

If you really want to be sure you are as efficient as possible you will need to look at the pump curve for your exact model and look for the point on the curve the pump is most efficient at, speed/volume wise and run it at that setting for the time you find thru experience mentioned above. That way the pump moves the most water it can at it's most efficient point for as little time as is required to keep the pool clean.

I hope I worded that in a way that makes sense.
