Well, it's my first year opening our 20x40 in ground pool.
I have read all I can about it and am having an issue getting my pump to suction water. My pump is 50-70 feet away from the pool. I fill the basket, turn it on, the water whooshes out of basket but nothing else happens after leaving it on for about three mins. I am worried about it overheating. I don't believe there are any air leaks. Should I let it run longer and the pool water will eventually be suctioned up the line? Any other ideas?
