My wife noticed the pressure gauge reading 0 psi a couple of days ago. No visible water leaks, good flow thru skimmer, and thru jets back into pool. I had her change the cartridge filter (I am half way around the world right now) and still 0 psi. Looking down into the pump basket thru the clear cover, the water filled less than half the basket.
About a year ago, we had renters that ran the pump dry, and it got hot enough to melt some of the PVC fittings. Back in April 2008 when I was home, I replaced the pump motor and all the o-rings, and some of the PVC fittings that I could get to easily.
My wife has called 3 pool companies in the local area, and all said they were too busy to come check out a pump.
Any ideas on causes and / or a fix??
