How Do You Prime The Pool Pump?

  1. Turn Your Multiport Valve to Recirculate

NOTE: Remove any plugs you have in your skimmer(s) or return jet(s) prior to doing this

2. Fill The Pump With Water

Remove the pump lid, fill up the pump housing (where the basket is) for approximately 2 minutes.

3. Replace the Lid & Turn On The Filter System

You're mission was successful if the pump fills with water & there are no visible air bubbles!
