We cannot get our pump to prime. We filled the filter basket

Customer Question

We cannot get our pump to prime. We filled the filter basket with water, secured the lid and turned on the pump. But water does not pump. We think we must have gotten air in the line when trying to attach the vacuum. Suggestions?

Hello,
are you sure the lid is air tight?...are there any gaskets on suction side that could be drawing air?
