Boy...finding how to post a new thread is challenging. Anyway....
Pump is turning but will not prime. Iíve taken to removing the strainer basket and holding my hand over the inlet port at the bottom of the basketÖ..nothing. Also with basket and lid in place Iíve checked for vacuum at the D.E. filter bleed screw, usually that will start with a vacuum and then turn to pressure when the filter fills, again very little to nil vacuum. I canít pull the pump till next week, but does it sound like the impeller has gone? All was ok until I turned the pump off and threw the two valve flow directors from pool to spa, then masses of churning in the basket but no pressure in the filter. Moving them back to pool has not fixed the problem. I have moved them back and forth with the pump off each time, but no pressure or water draw from the pump. Thoughts, suggestions welcomed.
