Hello all- I am having some headscratching issues out at our inground pool and thought maybe someone could help. Our pool was built March of last year, since day one, after the pump kicked off, you could hear the water gurgling and leaving the pump basket. It always took a minute or so to prime up and function, but always has. The pump is a Pentair whisperflo 1.5 hp. I have also had issues with the pump since day one. So far 3 impeller bearings have been replaced and the motor has been replaced once. Most recently it lost prime and ran all day without ever getting enough water in it. I noticed a leak on the connection on the top of the pump that goes to the filter and have since replaced it. As of right now it is leaking an almost a steady stream from the bottom of the pump (also the impeller bearing again?) and wont prime on its own. I can get it to prime if I open the valve on the top of the filter system and let the air out most of the time. The gasket on the lid seems to be in good shape and sealed. The equipment pad is slightly higher than the pool. Will the leak from the bottom of the pump cause it to not prime? Also, any idea why it continues to leak from the pump? So far Ive been really disappointed in the continuous repairs being that its barely over a year old. I am very much a novice to plumping and all pool related wording but have learned quite a bit so far on here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
