SOURCE: Jacuzzi magnum pool pump impeller broke

The impeller on the Magnum pump unthreads counter clockwise as do other impellers. There is a shaft of the motor that runs the length of the motor, on the back of the motor when you take the bell housing off you will see a small silver spot with a **** in it for a standard screwdriver. Put the biggest one in there you can and then grab the impeller and turn it counter clock wise and it should unthread. Sometimes they won't if it has been on there a number of years. You will need to break it off if it doesn't unthread. Then just purchase a new Impeller for the Jacuzzi Magnum Pump.

SOURCE: air in my jacuzzi pool pump

It sounds like air is entering the system through the clear dome (filter access) on the pump. Check the o-ring directly underneath the clear plastic dome. CAUTION: Be sure to isolate the pool from the pump via in-line shutoffs prior to loosening the dome lid. Sometime cleaning the o-ring and coating it with petroleum jelly helps the unit seal better.

SOURCE: it is an above ground pool. The Jacuzzi pump is 1

The cables will overheat if they are carrying more current than they are designed for.

There are two possibilities for this problem:-
1) there is a short circuit -not too likely as there would be tripping problem.

2) the motor is working harder than it was designed for and is drawing more current than the cables can stand.

Check the pump to see if it is rotating freely; perhaps there is something blocking the pump.

If the pump basket is clean and there are no suction leaks, the problem may be that debris has gotten past the pump basket and is clogging the impeller.
A quick way to check is to fill the pump pot (where the basket goes) with water. Leave the lid off and start the pump. The water should be sucked out immediately.
If the water takes more than about half a second to go down you have a clogged impeller and the pump needs to be opened to clear it.

Not pumping strong. Filter pressure gauge is going low.


Could be air entering the pump on the suction side - dead giveaway is a stream of bubbles entering the pool, possible causes are damage/faulty pipe joint, leak at strainer basket - is the o-ring clean and in place, is the lid craked? Other possibility is leaves etc caught in the impeller caused by damaged or missing strainer basket.

ZODIAC INGROUND POOL PUMP MAKES A NOISE BUT DOES NOT PUMP WATER. WAS WORKING AN YESTERDAY. HAVE CLEANED FILTER, AND MANUALLY TURNED FAN AT THE BACK. STILL NOT WORKING??


If your pool pump is acting sluggish it may simply be a build up of debris inside the impeller. Cleaning it is simple if you know how.
Step 1 - Check the Impeller

You can check the impeller for clogs by opening the clear cover that is on the strainer basket. Then place your garden hose into the basket and turn it on high. The water should disappear immediately. If it does not, you may have a clog.
Step 2 - Turn off the Power to the Pump

Before actually removing the clog from your pool pump impeller you will need to turn off the power to it. Remove the basket and use a finger to reach into the hole behind the basket to feel for any debris. If it is clogged, go to step 3.
Step 3 - Disconnect the Pump and Motor

Disconnect the pump and motor from the plumbing. Depending upon the make and model of your pool pump you may be able to skip this step. The motor usually just slides away from the pump.
Step 4 - Remove the Plastic Cover

Take the pump apart by removing the plastic cover over the motor. This cover generally has several small screws holding it on.
Step 5 - Remove and Clean the Impeller

Once the cover is removed you will easily be able to see the clog in the pool pump impeller. Just use your fingers or a coat hanger to clean it out.
Step 6 - Clean

Put everything back together. Once you have it cleaned out you can put the cover back on and put it all back together. Problem solved.

Pump not taking prime. I have a lot of pine leaves or nettles some of which may have got past the strainer. after it took prime it did not seem to have good flow,.


This is indictive of a clogged impeller or blown shaft seal or possibly both.
To clean out the impeller, simply removing the 8 securing bolt that hold the wet end against the seal plate and motor housing. Then remove the diffuser assembley. You should now have access to the impeller. Remove any debris from inside the impeller and impeller cage.
Reassemble , fill with water, and try to reprime.
If prime still fails, take apart again and remove impeller to replace the shaft seal.
Note:
1. Make sure the filter connected to this pump is clean and not causing the problem before following these instructions.
2. Here is the link to the exploded parts diagram for easy reference to part names. It is also good to look at previous to dissassembley so that you have a good understanding of what is where.

My2 hp max e pro pump runs but barely moves any water


Have you opened up the wet end? If you have pine trees near you, it is probably a blocked impeller and needs to be cleaned. If this is not the case, is the pump basket full of water or air?
If it is full of water, it is either the impeller, or the motor bearing.

if it is full of air, it is an o-ring or shaft seal. more likely the shaft seal. Always check the impeller first.

I have a Flotech FPOS1790PCA Pool pump that will run for 15 seconds and then shut off...how do I get it to stay running?


I have the same model and found that it frequently shuts off when it gets too much pine needles clogging the strainer.
I have unscrew the bottom "skirt" almost once a month and clean it out.

Good luck!

Onga pool pump running but not drawing water from pool


Take out the pump pot basket and stick your finger in the hole towards the motor (make sure the motor won't kick on!!). What you should feel is the impeller. It has five grooves in the face of it and each one needs to be cleaned of foilage and debris. With every hole clogged in the impeller you lose 20% of your motors effeciency. With whisperflow brand the pump pot basket is poorly designed where debris like pine needles go straight through.
