    HELP !!!!!!!!!!!

    Just installed my pool a month ago and the pump just quits pumping EVERYDAY. It is running but water doesn't return. It all started when I changed the filter for the first time. And I did lubricate the o-rings

    Welcome to TFP.

    That's an awfully small filter and pump for that pool, but lets see if we can help you a little.
    Are you sure you put it all back together correctly?
    If you are, then try this. open all the valves to and from the pool and loosen the top nut enough for water to leak out. Once it's leaking out with no air in it tighten it back down and start the pump.

    Post back if this doesn't work and we'll try something else.

    Re: HELP !!!!!!!!!!!

    That is what I do to get it going again; but it will then again stop. This is the pump that came with the pool. Do I need a bigger one? Where do you get one you know will work with the pool?
    And thanks so much for ur help

    How old is the pump/filter?
    You really do need a larger pump & filter. The Intex sand filter & 2650 gph pump would be a good fit.

    If you bought it new less than 30 days ago I'd be taking it back and getting a replacement. If you bought it at one of the big box stores as a package deal it's easy to return just the pump. Just tell them to take a pump out of a new kit and return the new kit with your old pump.
