SOURCE: opening pool can't get prime

Can't get your swimming pool pump to prime up and begin proper circulation? If your pump basket is not filling with water completely, then you have air getting into the system and it is not working properly. Usually this can happen when you open your pool for the swim season especially if you winterized your pool.
Make sure you unplugged any of the lines you may have closed off for the winter. If you can, have someone block off the intake while you add to the basket, when it will take no more, cap and turn it on.Have the person keep the end blocked for a couple seconds then remove once the pump it at full speed(2-3 sec). If this doesn't work, your probably have going air through the cap, get an o-ring.The o-ring needs to be replaced.-------

How do you prime it?


Hi Tom:
Priming is essentially the action of getting the air out so that the pump can push water. Sometimes there is a plug at the top of the pump. If you remove it, either air and then water will come out, or nothing comes out and you can see no water inside. Fill it with water, put the plug back in, and it should work. If the pump is higher than the water level in the pool you will have a bigger task.
We'll cross that bridge if we need to.

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

I primed my pool but water starts shooting out of the top of the vent and it is not a constant flow it stops than gives a push of water . I have a small 12'x30


Okay finally found the question again...
not enough info:
are talking about the pump...to what vent do you refer to. ...never seen a vent on a water pump. Are you talking about the priming filler cap? It should be sealed! Check the gasket perhaps it fell off and you missed it when replacing??

Pool pump wont prime when in pool mode, but will run in hot tub mode. Hot tub is 3 ft higher than the pool... is this a bad impeller? I think it may have run for a few hours without a prime , as I...


I assume that it pumps from/to the hot tub. If so, the pump is fine. Look for any air leaks in the piping/hoses from the connection in the pool to the inlet of the pump.

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

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
