Everything had been working just fine until today when I was messing around with some of the parts to my Liquidator, trying to install the upgrade kit to it. I think when I loosened up the connection on the Liquidator inlet (on the pressure side), a bunch of water backflowed as I could hear a lot of gurgling, etc..
Anyway, after I put everything back together, I noticed the pump basket was maybe half full or a little less. Turned the pump on and it was priming for 10 minutes or so before it hit a priming timeout and shut itself off. I've been spraying water into the pump basket to try to get it completely filled back up but the hose has been going for an hour or more and no dice.
I've tried a few times to put the lid back on the pump basket and then turn it on, but it just sits in the "priming" mode and would eventually timeout. I don't get any water being sucked into the pump basket at all. Is there anything I can do other than continue to let the hose pump water into the pump basket until the suction side pipes are filled back up with water?
