?Somebody here shared this but your husband might get a laugh out of it
Yes. I have also checked the impeller. We (mostly my dad, who is much more knowledgeable) actually opened the pump up to check the impeller when the basket wasn't holding proper water level. And I recently checked it again, with a clothes hanger wire.. nothing in there.Are you making sure that the pump basket is installed correctly?
Check the impeller for debris.
