possible air lock in pump!!


Recommended Posts

hi,

well they say everything happens in threes!

Second problem this week is I have had with the strong winds a lot of debris in pool  skim nets and checked my pump. I noticed  the water level is right down to bottom of pump.So i opened and topped it up but this all disappeared after repeating exercise twice.

I guess I must have a large air lock,,,assuming I have not damaged the pump.

 

If an air lock ,then how do I remove it thanks again.

hi, Thanks for your reply,

The filter is not full of water ,it is almost empty.

I refill WITH WATER  and place plastic cover on and bolt down,then start water circulation.

The water is very quickly  disappearing ,without refilling the pump.

So are you saying I should push the end of a hose pipe into the skimmer entrance?

hi,

I have just checked pump after leaving alone ,without circulation for 24 hours,and found on start up then running a while the pump is refilling.I therefore backwashed for 1 minute and started circulation an dalthough some bubbles in top of the pump it appears to be filling . I will watch it carefully.
