When your pool ran low on water, did the pump run dry for any period of time?

Sounds like when you ran it dry, it may of damaged the seals in the motor. It may have melted the impeller ring as well which would explain the priming problem. I would get a new seal kit and see if that helps.
Thanks for the info, I called Leslies and they say they have a revamp kit with orings for the pump, I am going to buy that and changem out tomorrow and see if that helps. Thanks again.
