. . .and I don't know how to get it running again!
I was going to backwash the filter as I've done many times. After shutting off the pump, I opened the strainer pot and cleaned out the strainer. Closed everything back up but the pump wouldn't pump any water!
Always before, I'd start the pump again, and it typically took a few minutes, but it did start pumping the water again. I ran it for 30-45 minutes and it wouldn't pump water in backwash, waste, or filter mode. I'm feeling like an eejit, but I don't know how to correct this!! Could it be something really simple, like pouring a bucket of water in the strainer pot and popping the lid back on?
Please help! The pump does make the right noises, I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I shut it down b/c I didn't want to burn out the motor. . .
