My pool just opened for the season and the pump wouldn't work. I have never opened my pool myself. I got the pump working and it will not suck water into the basket regardless if I have it on main drain or skimmer. I can't recall if the main drain is the falve handle parallel or perpendicular although I've tried both. I've tried the auto clean and the skimmer as I said. I've had the returns to the jets as well.
Is there a plug or something in the heater or salt cell or filter that could not have been removed? Thanks everyone.
