    Old pump on new Pool

    Hi,

    i just bought a 15'x48 above the ground pool. Now last year i had a 10'x30 easy pool which broke. I have the old pump left. Its a Flowclear. Very small one, though. My idea was to use it also with the new pool. I want to put it on the side and let it suck out the water from the top and then sprinkle it back in. Now i dunno if this pump can do this? Its not sucking water in. Tried different hoses, but nothing helps. When i look thru one of the holes i see the little propeller spinning?! Anyone tried such a thing and knows how to make it work?

    Thanks
