    Re: pool pump

    Assuming it has a lid that you can unscrew, take it off, fill it up with a house until its overflowing, put the lid back on, and turn on the pump. My pump doesn't really need to be primed to work, even if my pump is empty, if I just turn it on it fills up immediately. But I know others have had issues with priming.

    BTW - As a new pool owner, read the pool school link at the top of this forum. DON'T trust the pool store people. Everything you need to know as a new pool owner is here - It will get your pool looking perfect. I'm a new owner as well and this forum has saved me a ton of money and mistakes.
