    HELP!!! Clogged lines and pump won't operate.

    I am hoping someone can help me since I know very little about our new pool. The wind knocked over a large pot into our pool and the rocks, pottery, and/or dirt must have clogged the lines because when you turn the pump on, it doesn't do anything but make noise. Any ideas on how to clear them? Our pool guy is out of town so we are desperate! Thank you in advance!

    Is the pump turning?
    You may need to remove the rear motor cover (with the power off of course) and see if the motor will rotate.
