Hello
Check the pump impeller by shuting off pump taking out strainer and putting your fingers in to get any debris out.

After you put strainer back in put a bucket of water in collection basket to prime pump.
Also check your o ring on the strainer lid.If its cracked or worn the pump will not prime,but continue to **** air.
Also be sure your in filter mode before starting the pump up.You may need to lossen strainer lid a little to bleed ot air until water starts to flow again.
Possible bad o ring on stainer or impeller on pump is bad.
You may want to try putting the filter in backwash or drain mode and blow out any air also.

How to prime an A O Smith pool pump


if the pump is higher than the pool, you should have a ball valve at the front of the pump. close this valve, fill pump housing with water. close the system, open the valve and turn on pump. if the pump is below the pool level, you shouldnt have this problem.

Prime


Hi to prime your pump you fill the strainer basket with water and make sure all connections are tight with no leaks. Once you seal the lid turn on your pump and it should prime. If you have an issue you can force water through the suction line by putting a hose in the skimmer and force the water through your suction line. Time to Open the Swimming Pool

Not self priming itself. when it turns off the water pushes back out of the skimmer and pushes the basket up. it loses water and the pump cant re-prime itself.


PRIME PUMP, OPEN AIR VALVE ON FILTER. OR TAKE THE LID OFF YOUR FILTER AND SEE IF IT STARTS TO PUMP... YOU DO HAVE IT PLUMBED RIGHT? THE PIPE COMING OUT OF THE PUMP GOES TO THE FILTER !! I'M YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA. WHERE THE POOL IS ALWAYS OPEN

My Jet Pump Looses it's prime at night.


I assume the pump is not running at night. If the pump is higher than the pool, and the inlet and outlet to the pool are both under water, then you have a small leak. This could be allowing the water to leak out of the line. Or, if the leak is higher than the pool surface it is allowing air to leak into the line, which allows the prime to run down into the pool. If you found this useful, please vote. Thanks.

My intex pool pump is surging and won't stay primed???


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.

sounds like a priming problem. look at the check valve in front of the pump in the suction line. sounds as if it is loosing its prime so you don't have enough water close enough to the pump to get it primed.

How to 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
