Pump won’t prime

My neighbors pump won’t prime, water levels are all good but there’s a lot of gargling noise and the pump isn’t filling up, the filter pressure is low and fluctuating… There must be a small leak somewhere as the ground under the equipment is a bit wet…

Any ideas on how I can figure out the problem for her?

Thanks

A pump not priming is nearly always either a suction side leak, plugged suction line, or low water level in the pool. Be sure to check all those items.
