Hello all - Just bought a new house and the pool was missing the skimmer basket and weir. Pump ran fine for 2 months without them. I finally got around to replacing them and both fit fine, but now the pump seems to lose prime. It will have pressure for 30 seconds or so, then completely lose pressure, repeating this cycle over and over until I shut off the pump to prevent it from burning out the impeller. Water level in the pool is higher than at other times when I did not have this issue. I'm going to add some silicone to the filter cover and catch basket cover o rings. Any other ideas? Anything to do with the weir or just coincidence. I also have one of two jet eyelets, that is missing, because it is cross-threaded and the in wall coupler appears to be installed in a manner that would require demolition to remove. This is a whole other problem, but I'm not suspecting it to be related.
