When Main drain off lose prime

Postby Susanholcomb » Wed 17 Mar, 2010 18:00

Inground pool, de filter 2 skimmers, one skimmer plugged. With Main drain open no suction for Baracuda and skimmer basket, but primer stays full. when shut off main drain lose prime. checked all pipes for clogs and no clogs that we can tell. I am wondering if pump impeller clogged or what else can I do. Cannot look at impellor due to attached to pool and would have to completely take apart which I am not skilled enough or brave enough to do.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Cleaned out DE filter but since no suction cannot put de back in.
