I tried looking up a previous post on how to prime a pump and get the air out of filter and pump. I keep finding posts regarding the issue, but no answers to my issue. I see that some people are able to release air from the filter with an air valve....how would I do this? I don't know where the valve is. I inherited the equipment with the house we purchased so no manuals.
The other issue is we have water flowing through the skimmer and through the return, but the pump basket just has water pouring in, not filling with with water and creating a good amount of suction.
