Hello Fellow Poolers....
My main filter pump, a Hayward Super II will not prime. I have checked all of the usual issues....water level, clogged strainers, etc. and still can't get the pump to pull water.
My Jandy control system has automated valves that when put into SPA MODE the pump pulls water and primes. I have tried to start on the SPA side and switch to the POOL side and when I do I lose prime.
I have changed the intake valves from SKIMMERS and MAIN DRAIN and still with no success.
In the interim I have tried:
- Placed a garden hose in the intake portion of the pump to try and blow out any blockage.
- Used a wet/dry vac to try and suck any blockage out from one of the skimmers.
- Used a pressure washer to try and clear out any blockage.
Any suggestions from the group would be welcome.
