Check for leaks, make sure gaskets are sitting correctly. Make

sure the pump has prime and the filter has filled. On an above

ground pool this is easily done by placing the valve in the

"backwash" position while the pump is off. The pump basked should

fill with water. Then run the pump until the filter has filled and

the water in the sightglass is clear. Turn off the pump, move valve

to "filter" position and turn the pump back on. Never move valve

while the pump is running. never run the pump for more than five

seconds if water is not moving through it.
