Question about Emerson THREADED SHAFT UP RATED - 1.00 HP - EB228
Posted by Anonymous on
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.
