FAILURE TO PUMP; REDUCED CAPACITY OR DISCHARGE PRESSURE
Suction leaks/lost prime:
1. Pump must be primed; make sure that pump volute and trap are full of
water. See priming instructions, Page 9.
2. Make sure there are no leaks in suction piping.
3. Make sure suction pipe inlet is well below the water level to prevent
pump from sucking air.
4. If suction trap gasket is defective, replace it.
5. Make sure pump is not trying to lift water more than 10'(3m).
6. Make sure suction pipe is at least 2" (51mm) in diameter.
