2 thoughts on “How To Prime a Pool Pump

  1. Hi
    What would cause my pump to lose its prime every day upon startup? I prime it every day like you show and it runs fine after that until the pump timer shuts off then you can hear air or water running back to the pool. I do have a small leak on the suction side of the pool near the top of the pump, could this cause it to lose its prime? What a pain in the neck.
