Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


A leak somewhere in the system above the water line is letting the water slowly return back to the lower level in the pool...much the way a straw loses its ability when a hole is in it above the liquid in a glass. When the pump operates you should see one of two things:

1) Air bubbles in the pump inlet basket indicating a suction side leak that leads to be addressed before it gets so bad the pump will no longer prime, or...

2) A water leak on the discharge side of the pump that needs to be repaired to avoid losing treated pool water unnecessarily and to prevent continued loss of priming water in the suction line.

It sounds like you have a suction leak. What's odd it that it works for 2 hours then loses prime. I don't think it would be related to the air temperature. Check out the pump basket lid o-ring to make sure it is in good condition and properly lubed (this is a very common cause of suction problems).

Also check your water level to make sure it's high enough. Any valves on the suction side of the pump may also be suspect. Good luck with it.

Bucket Testing to Locate Leaks In Your Swimming Pool


<span>How To Conduct a Swimming Pool Leak Detection Using A Simple Bucket Test </span> <p><img src="Bucket.jpg" />In Arizona, you can see up a 3/4" per day loss through evaporation and it is suspected that during the course of a year, that nearly 3/4 of the pool would have been replaced due to evaporation. <br /> <p><span>Evaporation will vary greatly </span><span>depending</span><span> on a several factors; water temperature, air temperature, wind, dew points, barometric pressures and just overall changes in seasons. Also, if you heat your pool, you will also notice variations in evaporation. Because of these factors, evaporation rates can fluctuate from day to day, pool to pool, and of course, from parts of the country to others.</span><br /> <p>It is amazing how many people call in with concerns of leaks in their pool. They really are not sure <i>why</i> they are concerned but something has caught their attention and caused concern.<br /> <p>Before becoming too concerned about a leak, or spending the money on an expensive leak detection, conduct simple bucket test to determine if water loss in your swimming pool is due to a leak or is just evaporation. <br /> <p>In a nut shell, a bucket test exposes water in a bucket to the same conditions as those affecting your swimming pool. By comparing the water loss in the bucket to that in the pool, it is possible to determine if the pool is leaking or if supposed leaks are just the result of water being lost to the air.<br /> <p>Before undertaking any test, make sure your automatic water leveler is turned off!<br /> Bucket Test Procedure: <ol> <li>Bring the pool water to its normal level</li> <li>Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about one inch from the top of bucket. (By filling the bucket close to the top you are ensuring that air movement over the surface of the bucket will similar to that of the pool.)</li> <li>Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool. To keep it from floating away it may be necessary to place a few bricks or rocks into the bucket. (By placing the bucket in the pool water you are ensuring that the water temperature of each body of water will be similar).</li> <li>Mark the water level inside the bucket with a permanent marker on the outside of the bucket.</li> <li>Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket, on the pool wall, or skimmer face plate. I recommend the bucket, because then you have something tangible to look at. </li> <li>Operate the pool for 24 hours as it had been operated when a leak was first suspected, in most cases, this will be the normal run times. </li> <li>After 24 hours, make a second mark on the bucket to indicate the level of the water in the bucket and do the same for the pool level.</li> <li>Compare the two levels. If the pool water has changed more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak. At this point, you should contact a professional leak detection agency.</li></ol> <span>You are probably wondering how this works when the body of waters are so vastly different in size. It all comes down to <i>surface area</i>. No matter how large or how small, environmental factors act the same on the surface area of the body you are testing. </span> <span><br /></span> Further Diagnosis: Establishing suspected leak locations with a "Pump on/Pump off test" <br /> <p>Comparing the results of the bucket tests with the pump on for 24 hours to the results with the pump off for 24 hours can provide additional information as to the type of leaking you may be experiencing. <br /> <p>Conduct a second bucket test with the equipment sitting idle. Do the same steps as noted above. Any leaks during this time are now called <b>static leaks.</b><br /> <p>Water loss pump on &gt; water loss pump off = suspect return plumbing leaks (Pressure side plumbing)<br /> <p><b><u>RESULT #1:</u></b> Water Loss Active <b>greater than </b> Water Loss Static <br /> <p><u>PROBABILITY:</u> Skimmer/main drain or other plumbing leaks (return lines, infloor system, aerator)\<br /> <p><b><u>RESULT #2:</u></b> Water Loss Active <b>equal to </b>Water Loss Static <br /> <p><u>PROBABILITY:</u> suspect shell, liner or fitting leaks, (non-plumbing)<br /> <p>If you have an in floor cleaning system, water feature or specialty items on your pool you should also conduct independent tests with each of these in the normal operation and compare them against other results when they are not in operation.<br /> <p>These types of tests are not 100%, but they do provide you with enough information to determine if further leak detection is necessary and to provide the leak detection company with some great information!<br /> <p><br /> <p>We hope to have been of service to you!<br /> <p>The Ugly Pool Guy, <a href="http://www.wefixuglypools.com">www.WeFixUglyPools.com</a><br />

Hi.

A common reason for long or no drain for blockage at the drain hose and check setting of the drain hose. If the hose is blocked or incorrectly set drain may not complete. See page ten of user manual about hose setting. Here the user manual.

If the hose is OK the problem is either water level switch or blockage at drain pump.Water level switch is located in control panel assembly. the part is a plastic disk connected to a long thin rubber hose that goes inside the tub. If the hose is dirty the switch will not detect drain is complete and drain will not finish. The pump is located at the bottom of the appliance. The hose connected to the pump may be blocked. In some case the pump itself may be defective.In that case the pump must be replaced. The parts for this unit are not expensive.

Parts can be ordered from Haier. Here the US website: Welcome to Haier America

I have a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1515-Z2-EBK3 that is being used to pump water through 2-4x8 solar water heater panels. The pump intake is 1 1/2 inch, discharge out is also 1 1/2 inch. The pump is located...


I have a 3/4 hp hayward pumping thru solar panels, too. 1-1/2 discharge thru 50 ft of 2inch pipe, up 12 ft then thru (4) 4x12 panels. Mine is on 115 volts ac.
You have plenty of pump and when you run a pump with low flow, amperage is low. You are not tripping your breakers, it sounds like the pump is overheating. Is it hot to the touch when it shuts down?
Do you have an ammeter so you could check your amps?
What size wire is running the 60 ft to the pump?

I don't have any other ideas to share.

How to replace the water pump on a 1992 geo tracker 1.6 liter engine


Water Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
During these procedures, identify all components removed from the engine so that they may be reinstalled in their original positions. If discarding the old components so that new components can be installed, identifying the old items is not necessary.


1.3L and 1.6L Engines

  1. Remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, tensioner, plate and spring.
  2. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  3. Remove the one (1.6L MFI engines) or two (1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines) small rubber seals from between the water pump and the oil pump, and the water pump and the cylinder head.
  4. If necessary for clearance, remove the oil level dipstick tube retaining bolt from the engine block and the alternator adjusting brace.
e6f342c.jpg

Fig. 1: Exploded view of the water pump mounting

WARNING Do NOT use a prybar between the water pump housing and the engine block to separate the two components; this can cause scratches and/or gouges, which can prevent proper sealing.
  1. Pull the water pump off of the engine block. If the water pump is difficult to remove from the engine block, use a soft-faced mallet to tap the water pump housing until it loosens.
Do not disassemble the water pump; if the water pump is damaged or defective, the entire unit is replaced.
  1. Thoroughly clean the water pump gasket mating surfaces of old gasket material and corrosion.
To install:
  1. Along with a new gasket, install the water pump on the engine block. Tighten the water pump mounting bolts to 88-115 inch lbs. (10-13 Nm).
  2. On 1.3L and TFI 1.6L engines, install two new rubber seals: one between the water pump and oil pump, and the other between the water pump and the cylinder head. The MFI 1.6L engines only use one rubber seal, located between the water and oil pumps.
  1. If removed, install the alternator adjusting brace and the oil level dipstick retaining bolt.
  2. Install the timing belt, tensioner, plate, spring and cover.

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).

Beeping 3 times every 3 seconds


The 3 beeps indicates that the unit was in the freeze cycle for 60 minutes. Causes: 1.) Water valve leaking, allowing water to continually enter the system. 2.) Float switch stuck, sending false signal to board. This indicates ice not being produced. 3,.) Low freon level causing long freeze cycle. 4.) Hot gas valve leaking thru causing warmer than normal evap plates=low production. 5.) Expansion Valve not feeding freon properly to evap plates.
Items 1 and 2 are the most common. Number 3 possible due to freon leak in the system. Number 4 and 5 are usually a very rare occurance.
Hope this helps ya.
