  • Shurflo pump!

    I reinstalled my livewell pump and the motor runs but does not pump water. I checked the intake, all is clear. Tried to prime by sucking on the hose while the pump was running, still nothing.

    Any suggestions?

    couple suggestions...

    Here are a few thoughts. Most are painfully obvious - please don't take offence.

    If you briefly open your seacock with the pump out of line do you get water flowing in?

    Pump inlet/outlet connections reversed?

    Valve at livewell closed?

    Not sure why your pump was being REinstalled - might it be damaged?

    Can you test the pump outside the boat? ie try to draw water up from a bucket.

      Steve,

      Covered all of those except "bench testing" I was trying to not have to take it out.
