    Never said it fails to prime. No check valve in system. Old pump primed perfect. Need to read the original post again. Primes jjust fine , just does not fill the pump skimmer basket all the way to the top. Water level approx 1 inch from basket being full at prime or slow speed.

    I recently changed from a Hayward Max Flow VS pmp to a Jandy Pro FLow. The change over is another story entirely, which I have yet to post and will not get into that this time.
