    Pump looses prime over night... is this normal?

    Pump looses prime over night... is this normal? It primes right up when I turn it back on. It takes about 20-30 seconds to prime. I thought I read or watched on youtube at some point that the pump supposed to stay primed...

    The only way to lose prime is if there is a leak in the system.

    I've chased a leak for a while...anything short of getting all new stuff I can't find it!! Mine takes about 10 seconds to get up to speed. I'm good with that I suppose.

    You're not getting air in the basket when it's running correct?
    If not then it's on the pressure side, (after the pump). If it's only taking 10 seconds to get up to speed I wouldn't worry about it.
