HELP - I have a pool party planned in 3 hours and after disconnecting the vacuum hose from the skimmer opening I suddenly lost prime - all pressure out of returns ground to a halt! Pressure gauge reads zero. I checked the pump basket and the rubber gasket that seals it is all stretched out! I can't fit it around and close the top properly. I put a hose to the input hole at the pump and there doesn't seem to be a blockage, why is that rubber gasket all stretched???
ALWAYS this stuff has to happen now - I have had a great TFP thanks to you guys until just now!
