First of all you need to fill the pot with water. it is best to pour a bucket in or use a hose and turn the pump on and off real quick a couple times to **** some water into the pump. Once you do that fill the basket as much as possible and quickly put the lid on and turn on (make sure your lid o-ring is there and in good shape. lubricate it with pool lube so it's wet but not all gooped up). when you turn the pump on you should see water either splash, or at least start trickling into the pot. if you see water splash in, but then go dry again, or if it just trickles but doesn't prime after about 20 or 30 seconds, then you may very likely have an air leak on the suction side. Make sure your lid is sealed, the pipe goin into pump is not loose or leaking air, and make sure the pool cleaner hose is not out of the water, or the skimmer sucking air. If the pipe coming into the pump is sucking air or you suspect it might be try wrapping black electrical tape tightly all around the joint (where it threads into the pump). This is temporary troubleshooting step but works great. If there is a union or a Jandy valve where the pipe comes into the pump check o-rings and all joints for leaks.

Sounds like there is an impeller problem. A 1hp emerson should be fine. Take it apart and recheck impeller and diffuser. I am assuming they gave you a new seal to replace with the motor.

Yes, If the debris you speak of got past the filter basket, it can clog the impeller. If the impeller is clogged, it wont pump water. Simply remove the 6 bolts on the pump end, then remove the diffuser with a 3/32 hex wrench, then clean the impeller. Its very easy, and very important that this get done every 6 months in an outdoor pool with trees surrounding it.

Also, the filter basket should last a long time, if this is breaking on you, make sure your water chemistry is in check. Agressive water can cause lots of damage and cost lots of money.

If you still have bad flow after this fix, replace the shaft seal.

Help low pressure in pool pump and filter


I can relate so well to your problem. My pool is surrounded by pines and deodora trees... all the needles seem to find their way through the baskets, strainers and into the inlet of the pump. It became a daily routine of having to reach into the inlet and clean the debris if I wanted a filtered pool.
Here' s a solution that will work!
Purchase an extra debris scoop ...the kind you put on the pole and scoop debris from the bottom of the pool.
Cut the net out of the frame and wrap the netting around the skimmer's debris basket and secure it with an oversized rubber band or zip ties, then replace the basket back in the skimmer.
Your skimmer will keep the debris out of the pump!
This will make a world of difference in your pump's pressure!
Give it a try and see if you're not working better!

1/2hp Hayward Pump for existing inground pool


you will be fine with the 1/2hp. The Hayward will move quite a bit of water as well. It may not move as much water as the 3/4hp but it's very close and the 1/2hp will cost a little less to operate so if anything, you may just have to run it for one additional hour per day to compensate. You will be surprised how much water a 1/2hp will move. The only issue with smaller pumps is if you have pop-up cleaner heads or a suction driven automatic cleaner such as a kreepy krauly, however, if a 3/4hp will run it, a 1/2hp will run it as well. You can install a larger motor on the super pump but it will not move more water unless you upgrade the impeller as well. Just make sure you don't use a bigger impeller than what the motor is rated for because it will strain the motor and cause it to overheat. Hope this helps.

My new AO Smith 2HP pool pump won't pump water, just hums


I'm guessing that you replaced the motor that goes to the pump, not the pump itself. You know the motor works just fine. Is the motor rotating in the correct manner(clockwise or counterclockwise) in relation to the rotation of the pump? Have you checked the pump to see if the impeller is working/rotating? Is the motor hooked up to the pump correctly, so that the motor is turning the impeller? Are all connections to the pump tight, so there are no suction leaks? Have you primed the pump and purged it of any air locks?
