I have a Haward 2 speed pump with an ozonator attached. The issue I have is that the pump keeps losing prime between cycles. The pool equipment is 7ft ABOVE the pool
I have a Jandy check valve on the inlet side of the pump to prevent water from flowing back to the pool via the inlet. There is a tube that plugs into the pump that generates the ozone, I have removed that and plugged the pump with the origianl blanking plug - that makes no difference. I also disconnected the required bleed tube from the top of the main filter to the oulet pipe of the main filer - this appears to slow the leaking back to the pool, but does not stop it. I was thinking the only other thing I could try is to add a gate on the outlet with an actuator that shuts down the outlet after the clean cycle has finished. But I see that as complex and more maintance. Does anyone out there know if I have missed anything? at first I thought it was the ozonatoer causing the leak on the pump or due to the loop beteen the filter and the outlet but that does not seem to be the root cause of the problem. Any smart people out there? or do I just have to live with this?
thanks in advance R
