Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
I bought a house with an existing pool that hasn't been used for years. I have a Hayward superpump 3/4hp and high rate sand filter. The pump will run water through the waste drain when you fill the plastic pump well with water and keep it coming (using a 5 gallon bucket). You can take a shop vac and easily **** water from the inlet at the swimmin pool at the inlet of the plastic pump well. I can't get the pump to Prime . The only way it will pump water is if I am continually pouring it in. Please help
IF IT DOES NOT FILL CONSTANT FROM POOL IF IT IS AN INGROUND YOU WILL HAVE TO HELP IT BY PUTING A GARDEN HOSE WATER ON IN SKIMMER PUT A RAG AROUND HOSE FILL CUP TURN OFF RETURNS OPEN BLEEDER VALVE ON FILTER LET WATER FILL START PUMP AND OPEN RETURN VALVE SLOWLY YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS SEVERAL TIMES MAKE SURE AFTER YOU GET WATER FROM BLEEDER YOU CLOSE MAKE SURE ALL CONNECTIONS ARE TIGHT INCLUDING CLEAR CAP ON PUMP THESE ARE AIR BLOCKS IF ABOVE GROUND CHECK ALL HOSES AND CAP
