Question about Emerson Pool & Spa
Three things kill a pump, air, electric or dirty filter
1. Make sure that you are not using an extension cord.
2. If you can see water swirling around in the basket on the front of the pump you have air working it's way in.
3. If not 1 or 2 do you have a DE or Cartridge filter. is so might need an acid bath.
If you see water swishing around in the basket you are taking in air which will work to kill the prime on a pump. Check the water intake connection on the front of the pump and the strainer lid for worn out o rings. An o ring that is cracked or leaves black reisdue on your finger needs to be replaced. Never use vasoline to lube orings.
If you want to check this insert a garden hose while the filter is off into the jet that puts water into the pool. By doing this "reverse prime" you can find the suction side (any connection before the pump) that is loose. Since they wont leek under normal operating conditions this will help flag any bad oring or connection.
