Monday Madness

It's been busy and it's not letting up. We started pool maintenance this weekend, getting ready for the swimming season. Then yesterday we noticed a problem with the pump, and feared that the impeller was damaged. It's not, something was causing a no flow situation, but taking everything apart and putting it back together seems to have solved that problem. Added salt to the pool and maintained the chlorine system. Completed diagnostics. Started vacuuming. Now it's time for me to go back to work, for an open house. Busy Monday.

No happy hour today, just one steppin fetchit after another. Gotta put my gun belt back on and head toward the school house.

No clog? Sounds like your pump was full of air instead of water. The impeller will spin all day without moving anything.

I deal with "air-locked" pumps all the time at work.

Glad it was nothing major, and yeah, sounds like an 'air-lock'...

Ha, like your comment "Gotta put my gun belt back on and head toward the school house."

Sounds sinister!

Steppin fetchit? I haven't heard that since before Mama died in 1990. She was raised up near England, AR, not too far North of you.
