We'll probably need a little more information about what equipment you're using and what the setup is. In the meantime, check that all the right valves are open and all the wrong ones closed. Also make sure you have removed all packing materials - some pipes/hoses are fitted with end caps to avoid dirt getting in before you set them up. Also make sure you haven't got some mud or slime blocking the outlets. Have you got the outlet connected where the input should be and vice versa? (Sorry to ask, but we all do stuff like that now and then ;) )

Other than those, the most obvious thing would be that you have an airlock somewhere. If you can, try to fill all the lines with water before switching on the pump.

If none of that works, come back with more info and we'll do our best to help. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have versa gold submersible

Intermittent running usually points to intake or impeller obstruction. Remove the impeller screen and cover, inspect the impeller, the screen the discharge exit point for debris. Unlike other brands the impeller is not replaceable if worn or damaged.

SOURCE: Pump just stopped working one day. It was working fine the day before. Hums when submerged but does not pump.

It sounds like your filter is plugged, Take the filter cover off and rinse out your filter, it should take care of the problem. I clean my filter out every 2-3 days.

SOURCE: Pond pump trips circuit breaker

The circuit breaker trips because there is an electrical short in the pump itself or in the wire feeding the pump. A cause of this could be a bare wire, or a crack in a wire. Remove the pump and put it in a five gallon pail of water and test it. If it still trips the breaker you will know the problem is in the pump or the cord to the pump.

SOURCE: The motor runs, but not take in the water

Check the strainer at the pond. Prime the pump and see if it pumps anything.

It definitely sounds like your pool filters not set up correctly. Here is a copy of the users manual. Try taking a look at the detailed drawing. It sounds like your valve might not be set up correctly so pay special attention to that area of your filter.

Question before purchase (existing pond)


You don't need a bulkhead if your liner is EPDM. You can use a boot that is attached with adhesive that will seal you pvc piping. I don' t see a problem with dirty water going thru the pump before the filters. for some diagrams of settling tank installations see:

PUMP RUNS BUT DOES NOT **** UP WATER


I have experienced this same problem and all I needed was to prime the pump. Unless your pump cannot pump up that high.

Filter


You can build your own little filter by placing is in a container, like yorgart, with lid, but before you do punch holes into it no more than 1/8 inch all around. the more holes the better. this way your pump does not **** something into the chamber that will stop the propeller. I have done this and it works like a charm. Also you can use pond pots, the ones that have many slits in them.
Magnetic Drive Pond pumps can be left in the pond even if it froze. These pumps are great for weather. Once water unfreezes, pump will start again.

Pond pump types


There are basically two types of pond pumps to choose from - externally mounted and submersible. External pumps were traditionally used in water gardens. They sit outside the pond, with a hose that leads from a strainer in the pond to the pump. From there the water is forced either to a waterfall, stream or fountain. Because external pond pumps are often noisy and require extra plumbing, they are usually not suited for most backyard ponds. Due to easier accessibility and ease of repair, however, external water pumps are often the best choice for larger water gardens and public installations. Submersible water pumps are usually preferred by most do-it-yourselfers. They sit underwater where they are quiet and unseen. These pumps are easy to install, require no priming and stay cool thanks to the surrounding water. Submersible pumps draw water from the bottom of the pond, either through a strainer or biological filter. A hose attached to the outlet then feeds water to whichever water feature you have installed.
