First time I tried to use my pump I had only put about half a tank of water in. It just wasn't enough for the first time using it to get primed. After I filled it all the way it got primed and then after that i could use the pump with only 1/3 a tank or even less.

Irony, after your suggestion I am able to completely purge the air from the lines. I I found that the valve installed for the antifreeze fill line was not holding in the closed position, thus causing the pump to suck air. I capped the intake line and wala, instantly had potable water and the pump cycled off immediately as it should. thanks again

AWESOME!! least u didnt have to pull the pump, disassemble pump, curse in futility at said pump, then put it all back together before u figured it out!!...haha..and THAT is the beauty of these forums. can (usually) let someone else pave the way to a solution with their frustration and just get to the solutions part of an issue!...
