You either have a bad seal or bad connector..make sure you check them both very well....and if you didnt use a new seal, the old seals are pron to leak when re used.

I have a 2hp sprinkler pump that I am having trouble priming. I have 2 check valves on in the water by the intake and the other by the pump. It has take a few hours to get the water to the pump but still...


1. You only should have one check valve; the one in the water is best, remove the other if you can.
2. Make sure there are no leaks in any of the piping between the water and the pump inlet.
3. Take the pump apart, thoroughly clean the new seal, the two halves of the pump that go under the metal band, the inside of the metal band.
4. Lubricate the new seal, the outer sides of the pump halves where the metal band squeezes together, the inside of the metal band where it contacts the halves and even the screw on the tightening device using petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or equal. Make sure the pump literature does not recommend against whatever you use.
5. Reassemble.
6. Fill the pump with water, open the discharge on top of the pump if possible and prime.
Normally, a pump, even with a long run will prime in 5 minutes or less.

Write back.

Metal in the water. When you fill your pool, immediately treat as if you had metal, according to package insructions ... (pump running generally speaking).

I dont know why, it seems metal is sometimes hard to detect ... treat the water anyway. In my area, the stuff costs less than $20.00 which is way cheaper than removing the metal AFTER you find it!

Water pump removal (cant get power steering pump out)


To access and remove the waterpump, the powersteer bracket has to be removed completely. To do this, the rear camshaft drive pulley must be removed (need a tool to hold pulley, bolt tight) and then the thin sheetmetal shield behind the pulley. This allows access to the lower powersteer bracket bolts.
Removal of the engine mount is also required to perform timing belt replacement. It also helps to increase your access room too.
I would recommend you replace the waterpump why you are there as they have a tendancy to fail at around 140000 km's.
