Why don't I have suction from my Hayward Dual Submerged Suction Outlet?

First... is the pump running? If not, find out why. Is the circuit breaker tripped? Does it have a switch? Is the switch turned off?

What's the difference between in-line and submerged water pumps?

There are many differences between the two of them in the way they run but the main difference is the in-line water pumps run outside of water and stay dry the whole process and submerged water pumps run underwater usually in the sump of your filter.

Trying to drain back yard and all the pump does is humm does not **** the water what is that ball do that hangs to the side got no instructions..??thanks

It sounds like a submersible pump and the ball is the water level cut-off switch to switch the pump off when the level of the water gets too low. If the water is low, the pump may not be able to prime itself, it really needs to be at least partially submerged to start to operate.
Try lifting the outlet to the pump above the body level and fill the pump through the inlet. Holding the inlet closed, submerge it in the water you are trying to pump out, switch on the pump and take your hand from the inlet. This should prime the pump and it should start pumping, as long as the float does not switch the pump off because of low level.

This is the second time I have replaced the pump with no good results. This pump drains a pedicure chair. Some times it will drain sometimes not.Motor runs, with water going to inlet,but no flow out.really...

The #4E must be run submerged. The #3E may be used submerged or in-line. IMPORTANT: When

used in-line, the #3E must be installed so that the pump head (volute) is flooded before starting. That is,
the inlet of the pump must be below the level of the surface of the liquid being pumped.

2005 Chrysler 300 hemi. Engine quit going down road and will not restart. I believe it is the fuel pump. Last few times the tank was filled it would stall and die. would have to restart several times ...

The fuel pump is a good place to start since I doubt if the timing belt has broken in a vehicle this new unless you have been racing it. Yes, the pump is submerged in the tank. It could also be the fuel filter and that should be located under the passenger side of the vehicle near the gas tank itself.

My Simer 2300-03 has been great except that it overheats after awhile. Too little water??

Yes. I recently used a similar pump (Flotech 1/6 hp) running for about 24 hours - but it came with this warning "don't use continuously unless submerged in at least 4 inches of water". This is because it will easily overheat, as yours has been doing. Mine worked for pumping water out of my basement (not the speediest little pump), but only because there is a sump hole in the floor where the pump could remain submerged.

it is probably shot, you can do some simple ohm readings with multi-meter to see if it is shorted to ground. hope this helps

Pump trips GFI when submerged

Check your power cable for any hole and damage, that might be the problem

if not
remove the 2 screw where the cable is connect on the pump, gently pull off the ruber from the cord and check if your 3 wire are wet ? and if any water can come out of the cable hole?
if yes you have to take most of the pump appart to make the stator and rotor get dry and also check for any black part on the stator, to make sure it not burn if you cant find any black spot on the part let it dry for a week and spray some air on the stator everyday and your problem will be fix,
At our big factory we use special oven to dry the part quicker

If you have no water that came out from the inside of the pump it has to be the power cable or your breaker the reason why the pump work fine when only the base is submerge is because the pump have less restriction (Water to push) so the engine work is very light compare when she is submerge and have to push so much water alll the way throught the hose.

I can help you if you need more info,

How to install a new water pump on a big Green machine?

I have replaced this pump before, and had the pump "seize" again. I hooked the output of the bissel to a siphon pump to pull a vacuum while i had the input hose (with the little filter) submerged in a bucket of water. After i got the pump started, I submerged both the inlet and outlet hoses (after the trigger handle) into a bucket of warm water and turned the spray switch on to circulate clear water through the whole deal
