ok long story short, the guy is not home so I drained it by hand, flipped it on its back and there was the problem the hose was kinked . hooked it back up and works great

awesome ! good job ! that would have been one of the next things I would have told you to check but that's great you found it. theres not much besides a bad pump or a stoppage that can cause that, have a great weekend and thanks, Bryan
