    Priming Pool Pump

    Hello!

    I just opened my new pool for the first time last week. Everytime I turn off the pump and turn it back on it takes about a half an hour to get back the proper flow of water. I have tried filling the area with the basket up with water but it just sucks it through.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks!

    You probably have a suction side air leak. Read this article.

    5. The pool water level.

    Pump running, visually inspect the skimmer to make sure absolutely no air is "whirlpooled" down into the skimmer. That's a fairly common cause and an easy fix....add more water to the pool and make sure that the weir (flapper) door operates correctly.

    I have noticed this!

    Thanks!
