Hey there. Have an Intelliflo VF, worked pretty good for about 2 months. This week, got a lot of leaves in the pool from a wind. So, I ran it in manual mode for more flow to my pool cleaner. Also tried to run it in vacuum mode.
Same problem each time, System would try to prime and keeps shutting off automatically after failing to prime. This happened even with the strainer for leaves is empty.
Prior to attempting to vacuum, I had the system filtering for about 10 hours a day, then had it run for an hour a day in manual mode, at higher flow rate, for the pool cleaner.
