I have a Coleman 18ft 2020 pool by bestway. I was cleaning the filter and put it all back together and it stopped working. It was sucking the water in and and it wasn't pushing the water in. It wont turn on and bestway customer service sucks. Can anyone help me please?? I don't know what to do. I have my son's birthday part on Saturday for him and his cousins. Also where can i purchase one right now. I know they are hard to find.
Thanks

First check the valve on the fliter. Is it in the proper position. Set to by pass to see if it pumps. Since you were downstream of the pump there is nothing upstream that you have to worry about, only dowstream with is your filter valve.

Well i don't think mine has a valve. My pump is very simple. Here is a photo of it.

don't mean to steal your thread but what kind of sump pump. I looked and range from 50-200. Is the 50 dollars ok for now? I too have a pump that broke. Brush the vinyl floors? or the walls? or both? Thanks again

Brush the entire pool. That moves the water and mixes in the chlorine.

A 1/2 hp sump pump is typically under $100. I have a Superior brand I purchased through Amazon.

Now mine is sn 18ft coleman pool. Its leveled fir the most part. When i put the pump in the water the hose can go anywhere correct ? Since there really isn't a deep end for the most part. Also is it safe to go in while the pump is on and in the pool
