Question about Intex 2500 Gallon Sand N Sun Pool Replacement Filter Pump Only
How do I prime my pool?
Prime is the term we use to state that the air has been mostly purged from the pump and the pump is moving water. When you have lost the prime, your pump is no longer pumping water through it. Sometimes it can be very difficult to regain the prime on the pump. This will tell you how to get the prime back in these difficult situations

Open the top, dump water in it while it is turned on. If it is struggling to pull water through, you may have a clogged impeller. If not let it prime and when it starts pulling water through quickly, put the cap back on quickly.

Sometimes my pump will loose prime and the number one problem i found is my lid on my strainer basket connected to the pump was to tight...go figure but when i loosened it a lil it started to pump....also sometimes if your water level is low then it takes time to fill up in the skimmer and it will loose prime that way so make sure u have adequate amount of water in your pool.

SOURCE: lost prime
Turn off the pump at the timer and remove the lid to your pump where you empty the debris from the basket. Get a hose or bucket and fill that resevoir with water and get the lid back on as quickly as possible. Turn on the pump and it should start to prime. On the filter, there is a air relief valve. Depending on the filter, it will pinch and twist, or there is a knob to uncrew. Doing that as the motor is running allows tbhe air that has built up inside to puge out. Once a steady stream comes out close the relief valve. May need to tryh it more than once.

i think its pump side first as its easier to push water through a filter rarther than trying to **** it , Also the only reason it could loose its prime is through air getting in the system.

THIS HAS PRESSURE ON THE PUMP WHEN IT IS HOOKED UP TO THE POOL , NO PRIMING IS NEEDED. NOW IF IT'S HIGHER THAN THE WATER LINE OF THE POOL THIS KIND OF PUMP WILL NOT WORK , YOU NEED A PUMP THAT HAS A HAIR BASKET . THESE YOU FILL THE BASKET UP AND REPLACE THE LID AND YOU PRIMED IT.. . IF'N I WAS ANY HELP VOTE FOR ME ...THANKS.. JAY
