Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Priming Fresh water pump
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It is self priming.
Self priming pumps don't prime if there is a suction-side air leak. Maybe the easiest way to find the problem is to disconnect the suction hose at the source fitting near the bulkhead behind the pump and using a funnel add water to the pump through this hose and reconnect. The suction leak is probably at this hose connection, or at the other end of this hose at the connection to the pump.
Also, you might find the in-line one-way valve stuck open with trash.
Hope this helps.
