Well I ordered a new drive assembly repair kit for my water pump. It's actually the rubber diaphragm part of pump called " drive assembly". Put it in and mint it works again. Something must have happened over the winter to rubber diaphragm ? $39 part so I am back in business now.

Did you have a valve downstream of the pump open? Sometimes that's the trick. Could also be a check valve issue.

Sounds like an air lock to me. Can't prime correctly without air. Take the pump out and test it.

Had pump out twice and took apart put back didn't work same thing. Replaced drive assembly and worked right away!! Now with it working pumped water right away and built pressure . Drained everything and Tryed again and worked great.

My setup has a winterizing hose and valve close to the pump much like this pictorial show. One time my pump would not prime and I finally found the valve was not completely closed off. Might test yours and make it is is not leaking air from the open end of the winterizing hose...



this hose setup is also a good place to test to see if the problem is local or in the tank etc... Set the valve to winterize and stick the hose in a bucket of water and see if the pump picks it up
