No prime = either impeller problem, air leak, or blockage on output(bad filter or bad valve) My first choice is dirty filter. Second choice is impeller. Both easy to check.
If you have checked those than you probably have an air leak. Hold a very slow running hose over all pipe joints running into filter, while motor is running. Most likely place is the screw in fitting on front of pump. The water from hose will temporarily seal leak and it should prime.

How to prime a sand filter pump


It depends on the pump but most pumps have a filter bowl with a screw on cover - you need to fill this with water and start the pump. if the pipework connected to the pump and the filter are empty you will usually have to repeat this process a few times, but once the pump is primed it should start up without repriming in future - Hope this helps - Nigel

My sand filter no prime new motor above ground pool


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


The most common causes of no prime are that the filter pot is not filled with water (don't forget to put the cover with a gasket on), there is an air leak in the pipes/valves between the pump and the pool, a plug of leaves or other debris in the suction line, or the pump is installed so high in elevation relative to the pool that just a little of the above issues will prevent it from priming. I hope this helps.

Sand Leaking From Filter into Pool. When my filter is running I am experiencing sand in the bottom of my pool from the filter. What can be causing that?


There is only one thing that can cause sand to come back into the pool from a sand filter. The internal assembly, called the lateral assembly, is either cracked or broken. This is an easy fix and should cost you around $70 to replace the whole thing. You need to unscrew the bottom drain cap on the filter to remove the water in the tank. Then, remove the multiport valve on top of the filter. Take a shop vac and remove the sand in the filter. If the sand hasn't been replaced in the last 3-5 years, this would be a great time to do that since you already have the sand out anyway. Then, remove the lateral assembly and inspect the entire thing. After you replace the lateral assembly, you'll need to fill the sand filter tank 1/2 full of water before adding fresh sand. This is done to cushion the laterals from the weight of the sand. Cover the hole in the top of the lateral assembly pipe with a cup or duct tape to prevent any sand from getting inside the pipe (the sand will come out into the pool if it gets into the pipe). Fill the tank 3/4 full of pool filter sand. Make sure it is genuine silica pool filter sand from a pool company. A lot of big box and home improvement stores sell play sand as filter sand. This will cause you more problems!

My pump isnt priming. I have put water in the area with the basket and it isnt filling up. We have replaced the seal and the tank doesnt seem to be filling back up therefore the water isnt filling up in...


Is there enough water in the pool 1/2 way up the skimmer flap to prime the lines, Are the skimmers clogged? Are all valves in their correct position? Have you checked the gasket on the top of the filter? Is the spring weak/broken, handle should have some tension, has the gasket rolled, torn or slid?

I seem to have sand in my pool


If you are seeing sand in your pool, 2 things could be going on, first have you back washed filter, it could need cleaning, second you have a hole in one of the filter internal baffles letting sand in pool. I would backwash first, if still happens take filter apart clean everything, check baffles, if any holes replace them, fill with new sand, your filter cover has a tag on it and tells you how much sand you need. Then restart. You are done.

No pressure in my sand filter


Sounds like your pump is not primed. That would be the only reason your filter doesn't register any pressure. Try priming the pump by filling the hair/lint pot with water and starting it up. If the pump pot is full while it's running and you still have no pressure, you may have a clogged pump impeller.

No pressure at all on pump gauge


Without knowing your pip and valve layout, it is difficult to assess the stiuation, but it sounds to me as if either a valve that lets the water into the filter is shut, or the filter is full of air and needs to be primed. On some models if you loosen the top ring until the water fills the chamber and starts to overflow that takes care of the problem. But if you cannot tell by looking at the layou if a valve that should be open is closed, or don't know how to prime it, don't run the pump until they can come back.
