Pump not priming or losing prime

Know what can be the reasons of your pump not priming

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
