If your pump is blocked in any way (usually a closed valve), then the pump cannot keep water flowing. It could be starved of water if blocked on the suction side, or an air leak. On the return side, it's usually a ``dead head`` pipe, or a closed outlet valve. In either case, the pump can overheat and actually boil the water within it. In that case, the fittings attached to it can deform and cause bigger air leaks, which compounds the problem. If you replace the fittings, reconnect the pipe and remove any blockages, you should be fine.

IF PUMP TURNS ON AND BASKET FILLS AND NO MOVEMENT IN BASKET COULD BE IMPELLER BUT MORE THAN LIKELY A AIR LEAK PROBLEM CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS AND CLEAR CAP ON PUMP MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT THIS PART IS AN EASY FIX

PINNACLE POOL PUMP SHUT OF DUE TO POWER LOSS THEN CAME BACK ON ALSO IMMEDIATELY NOW PUMP RUNS BUT NO WARE PUMPING but can not find any leaks


Do you mean no water pumping?
If so it's likely that your impeller is broken. The impeller screws onto the motor shaft.

I shut off my pump yesterday and water shot out of the skimmer. when i turned the pump on it wouldn't work, the pump basket has water in it but it isn't pumping anything, no water coming out of...


I suspect you had air trapped in the filter. When the pump shut down, the compressed air in the filter pushed back, turned the pump backwards, and unscrewed the impeller off the motor shaft. This particular pump doesn't use an impeller screw which prevents this from happening. You will have to pull the pump apart to see if this is the cause. I have seen this happen many times.

Have a hayward 1.5hp motor. plastic impeller broke off and is not spinning, how do i replace.


YOU WILL NEED A NEW IMPELLER SPX3010C SUPER HAS 4 BOLTS OR A SPX261OC SUPER 2 HAS 6 BOLTS. JUST TAKE THESE BOLTS OUT AND THE IMPELLER SCREWS OFF TO THE LEFT, CLEAN UP THE TREADS. USE A NEW 201 SHAFT SEAL. AND ON THE MOTOR PICTURED THE SHAFT CAN BE HELD AT THE BACK OF THE MOTOR TO SCREW ON THE NEW IMPELLER.. PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER ,PRIME THE PUMP WITH ABOUT 4 GALLONS OF WATER. RUN IT AND WATCH FOR LEAKS .. NO LEAKS ? YOU GOOD TO GO ! ..

Not gettin suction from line it is free of debris no leaks back of pump does not have good suction but water when i try to prime it will not **** from suction pipe but does try to prime filter helpppp


Hi crazee,

If you go through the prime sequence and the water just sits there, the impeller may be damaged. Over time the blades get worn down.

I could help you better if you provide some more detail.

My hayward 1hp pool pump is running very hot to touch


Make sure the supply wire is the correct gauge for the current draw. The main reason to run on 240 volts is a smaller gauge wire and breaker than on 110 which draws close to 15 amps. For example a person using an above ground on a small extension will cause it to overheat. Make sure it is getting as much power as possible
