Fill the suction line all the way to the foot valve making sure to get all the air out of the line and that should do it for you.

Toilet water spins but wont drain . not evn when you add water to tank, it just overflows then


if it is a normal toilet / sewerage system, then get yourself some caustic soda ( make up a solution with water) and at the first bend in the sewerage line outside the toilet, remove the inspection cap and pour the solution in the pipe ,replace the cap and wait around 1 hour
remove the cap and use a hose to put extra water in to move the build up
If you have trees in the yard near the sewerage line then forget the caustic soda but get in a plumber with a snake cutter to cut the roots of the tree/s that have blocked the pipe
if it is a septic system then have the tank pumped out
if it is a tank system like in a caravan then empty the tank

Will not prime


My pump didn't pump until I filled the 'suction side' pipe with water before I attached the pipe to the pump. The suction pipe needs a foot valve if you have a long lift from the water to the pump. Then pour water into the pump on the outflow side. Should pump fine . It'll purge the air out after a little bit if you filled the pump with enough water. I almost bought a relacement pump but then realized that the foot valve wasn't sealing and the suction pipe wasn't holding water. We have about a 8 foot vertical draw to the pump . Good luck.

When flushingtoilet water backs up inshower


You can try this, get a bottle of liquid plumber industrial or pro, and pour the entire bottle into the pipe in the toilet, when you remove the toilet cover you see a pipe that has a water line in it from the fill valve, if you can't pour the liquid into this pipe, then turn off the water to the toilet, flush it and hold the handle until all the water has emptied out.


Now while holding the handle, pour the bottle into the hole where the stopper is open, the hole where the water goes down.

Wait a hour, then take a bucket of hot water and fill the toilet water tank, flush it, do this again.

Now turn the water back on and flush. If the shower still over flows, you will need a plumber to come and snake the main line from the toilet down until the clog is cleared.

Unless he finds a close access near the toilet if this is on the first floor and he can do it from the basement.

Pump priming problems


Fill the pump strainer with water. Make sure the gasket on that cover is good. Gently tighten the cover into place. There can be no air leaks in the suction line. Frequently, if you crank down the cover too tightly, you will actually create a air leak. Use plumber putty temporarly around all joints on the suction side if you continue to have trouble with this. This will allow you to find and repair your leak.

I have a model 109163. I'm trying to pump water from a creek. The suction hose is about 6 ft below the pump and 12ft long. The output hose is running about 300 ft at a gradual incline to about 10 ft. My...


In order for the pump to **** up water, it must discharge air. Try this. Install a hose bibb (faucet) in the discharge line over top of the pump. Fill the pump housing with water, turn on the pump and open the hose bibb/faucet until full water flow is established. Almost all air should be out of the pump and suction line at this time. Now when you close the hose bibb/faucet, the pump will have plenty of pressure to fill the long discharge line.
Suction line should be 2-1/2 inch if that is the pump suction size.
What size is your discharge line?
There should be a check valve/foot valve on the end of the line in the creek to keep water in the pump once it is primed.

Have a hoover model F5914-900 it wont spray anything out the hose attachment. The line isn't clogged any ideas?


Yes, one thing to try: With the hose attached, place your hand over the suction opening at the pick-up end of the hose. Then pull the trigger. The pump is suction driven, and if there is air in the water line in the hose, that is known to allow th hose to prime in about 10 to 15 seconds.

Leaves in the skimmer line and its plugged


Is the obstruction on hte suction side or supply side of the pump?

Either way, you can disconnect the pump, and work from there. If the pump was installed correctly there shgould be unions ( fitting that can be reconnected on the pump suction and supply. If not, you can cut the pipes a few inches from the pump and then shorten the remainder to acomodate the length of the union. Glue these in place follow the instructions on the glue can.

Try using a water hose with the water on from the direction of the pump to the pool. see if this does the job. Leaves should be able to be pulled through by the oumop, I suspect somthing larger. Do you have a strainer on the suction line? Have you checked the pool filter?

I would check the filter first. Why do you think the problem is a clogged line? How do you know the pump is performing? Does it run a Spa, and nbot the pool?
\Good Luck
