Hey guys and gals, been lurking for a while but it was time to post. Love the site and all the info. So I'm having an issue. Pool is about 5 yrs old.
So my motor bearings and parts of the pump went out. Took both in to get repaired. They replaced bearings, impeller, etc. Went home hooked everything back up the same way. Pump turns on fine. I fill the basket full of water with the hose and put lid on. I turn the pump on and it just sucks the water out of the basket and then thats it. Its like I will have my son on the other end of the suction hose where the cleaner is and he says it pulls hard for one second then dies off. So it must be getting air in it. I messed with this **** thing for 3 hours yesterday afternoon in 110 weaher with no luck. I tried filling the basket with water with the valves on the just the drain, then just the hose, both and everythime nada. It has to be sucking in air. Not sure, anyone have this issue before.
Thanks for any help.
