    no pressure

    Got a new motor for the pump, A Jacuzzi Magnum. Closed the main drain and used the skimmer but still nothing from the return eye and no pressure at the filter.

    Re: no pressure

    More info required.

    Did you turn on the motor?
    Is it churning water in the pump?
    Is there air in the pump?
    Any valve still accidentally closed?
    Pictures of the plumbing?

    Re: no pressure

    Motor runs, but it I don't think its drawing water into it. Can't tell. I filled the pump with water and closed the lid then turned it on. The skimmer got no valve on it it goes straight to the pump. I think there is air in the pump but can't tell. I did use the bleeder valve on the filter to try and purge any air in the system.

    Re: no pressure

    And did any air come out of the filter?

    How did you close the main drain? Why?
