    Pool pump losing prime

    Thanks. The other pump isn’t tied in to the skimmers. I have 4 main drains and I think two are tied into the main pull pump and filter and the other is just used for the deck jets. So, I wouldn’t be able to use the deck jets either with out figuring out how to unclog the main drains.

    Pool pump losing prime

    Ok - so, an update. I’ve been trying to figure this out. I added silicon lubricant to the pump seal. That didn’t resolve the issue. The pump is able to prime itself - just loses prime every time it stops and starts whether switching from pool to spa or spa to pool. The other pump for the deck...

    Pool pump losing prime

    Will a leak in the filter discharge also cause this loss of prime? It's weird because the other pump that runs the deck jets exhibits the same behavior.

    Pool cover is wayyyyy underwater. Pumping possible or lost cause?

    I used to have a cover that would fall in. Instead of pumping the water off and refilling the pool, I would pump the water off and back under the cover. Might want to try that?

    Pool pump losing prime

    Was water leaking out of the drain plug with the cracked o-ring?

    Pool pump losing prime

    Every time I start the pump this season, the pump loses prime and has to reprise itself blowing a ton of air through the returns. Last year it would start right up without any air coming out. Even if I switch from spa to pool, the pump loses prime and I can hear it groaning for a bit before...

    Salt water taste - minimum salt level

    Honestly, I keep mine at about 3400 and don’t think I can even taste the salt in the water. It’s only something like 1% of the salt content of the ocean.

    In New Jersey, they wouldn’t even plaster until 8 sent them pictures of the fence installed.

    What if the pool is not covered during the winter?

    Honestly, I think that is it. You will have stuff falling in and no way to clean it out because pumps and everything will be shut off. Actually, if you get it back up and running before the water temperature gets above whatever temp algae starts to grow, you shouldn’t even have to worry about that.

    Pool Heater Advice

    I think it depends on how you intend to use the pool in the extended season. If going in everyday, then maintaining temperature with a heat pump might be a better option. If you just want to hear it 5-10 degrees for the weekend, a natural gas would probably be better. It costs me about $4 per...

    Yes, woke up this morning and the WSM had dropped below 150. So, I got it stoked up again and just pulled it off at 201. They are 2 pork shoulders at about 9 lbs each.
