Ok, I admit it, I'm an idiot! I'm rehabbing a house which has a pool. The water level was a little low so I threw a hose in the pool and turned it on. When I got ready to leave, I turned off the faucet, disconnected the hose, and put the freeze cover back on the faucet, leaving the other end of the hose in the pool. I suspect you know where this is going.. The hose became a siphon and drained about a foot of water out of the pool. Water level dropped below the skimmer level and the pump ran all night without any water.. (Idiot!!!) I discovered this tonight, but by the time I got the water level back up, it was too dark to see. I filled the basket back up and the pump spins and tries to prime, but I never got any pressure. I'll look at it again tomorrow, but my question is .. Does running a Hayward 1 HP, single speed super pump, with no water, automatically ruin it? If so, what should I expect when I open it up?
Thanks, Jim R.
