First post here.
I've recently taken over the operation of an outdoor, in-ground pool with 2 above ground pumps. These pumps are above the water level by a good 3 feet when the pool is full. I operated the pool a bit last summer, and when the pumps were already holding prime, they started back up relatively easily.
I'm starting up the pool for the summer this week, so I need to figure out the initial prime. Any tricks of the trade for priming this kind of situation?
