Just installed my new Epump and 5.0 upgrade.

It's working well and is very efficient.

Im trying to figure out why the basket never seems to fill with water.....

That's what I figured but other than replacing the pump- nothing has changed

maybe the new pump is creating more suction than the old one did.

It undoubtedly does - and a lot lower rpm as well.

The 1HP unit was a full decade old and had never even had the impeller looked at much less cleaned or repaired.

Still does'nt look right to me.

Turns out when I RPM the pump up to 3450RPM the basket fills just fine and looks normal- the slower I run it the less filled the basket is.

Hmmmm
