I have two 1.5 horsepower Hayward pumps servicing a 55,000

Customer Question

I have two 1.5 horsepower Hayward pumps servicing a 55,000 gal pool. After a vacuuming the pool, the pumps lost suction but ran for several hours, water became extremely hot. Now I can't get the suction to start. similar to air leak. but I have changed hoses and when introducing water into the water basket it does pump it out.
