Know what can be the reasons of your pump not priming
- Check the water level: Ensure that the pool water level is above the minimum level required for proper pump operation. If the water level is low, it can cause the pump to lose prime.
- Inspect the lid and o-ring: Check the pump lid and the o-ring for any damage or debris. A faulty or improperly seated lid or o-ring can cause air leaks and lead to loss of prime. Clean or replace the o-ring as needed and ensure a tight seal when closing the lid.
- Verify the valves: Check that the valves on the suction and discharge lines are open and positioned correctly. Closed or partially closed valves can restrict water flow and cause priming issues.
