Hello. My name is ***** ***** water supply hose from the fitting coming up from the drive. Do you have water flow? If you have water flow the impeller in the pump has probably failed. If no water flow you will have to have someone go into the water and check the pickup on the drive. You might try connecting a water hose at the top where the sea water pump connects using city water back flush the drive. Post back with questions and findings.Thank you.....Tan
