    Jandy ePump priming speed

    Is there a recommended priming speed and duration? The manual just says how to set these parameters but no advice on what they should be. The Pump has a speed range between 600 and 3450 RPM.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Generally the defaults are good. Some situations where you need to adjust these settings include plumbing systems with especially high or especially low flow resistance. For example a pool with an in-floor cleaning system will usually need a higher speed and longer time to prime reliably, while a pool with a single short run of 1 1/2" plumbing will tend to need a lower speed and possible a shorter time as well. The height of the pump above water level also matters, the more above water you are the more likely you need a longer time to prime.
