    Booster pump- PCC2000 not reaching full pressure...

    So my pool is getting up to completion after major remodel - about 5 months with no pump/motor use. The filter pump had no issues starting up but the booster a no go. In fact the the propeller shaft seized up while trying to get this to prime. It's a challenger/pacfab 1hp
    I had the motor bearings, shaft and seal replaced this morning and back on the pump.

    With the pump back on, I couldn't get to prime. I left it to go to work. Got back to it after work and was able to get the water to build pressure with the lid under pressure. Thought I was good to go but after a while I noticed my heads not popping up. The pressure gauge on the PM6 shows up to 50 psi much higher than I am used to avg. 25psi.
    The PM 6 looks good the individual valves snap back and seat and the impeller and gear pieces move easily.
    The suction at my skimmer( 2 holes - 1 for filter and the other for the booster) is very little. I have no valves on this system as it's dedicated just for cleaning system.
    Not sure what to do next??
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance...
