Hi- new pool owner here. We had someone come open pool mid May. He stopped showing up to finish the job and we tried finished cleaning ourselves.
The pump isn't running consistently and has not ran for 24 consistent hours to begin to clear. I have the Hayward 3 speed.
It will run then shut off.
Thought it was a problem w settings so I did a factory reset on pump- problem not solveD. I thought timer issue.
As I'm researching it seems like pump isn't priming. I replaced the rubber ring and used silicon before to put in.
I ran garden hose in skimmer
I put a screwdriver to make sure there was nothing lodged in.
If it is clogged- why would it work sometimes then after running a bit it continues to hum but stops pulling water through.
Having 9 year old party first weekend in June and I'm in panic mode.
