Step 4 Prime the Pump

Once you have hooked up your motor and filled your pool, put the garden hose into the skimmer and allow water to fill the filter and push back out into the pool. When you feel water coming back into the pool, your pump is primed

Step 5 Bleed The Air Out Of Your Pump

Following your pumps directions  start the pump then unscrew the bleed valve (or the pressure gauge) and watch what comes out. When only a steady stream of water has been emitted  you have successfully removed all air from the system and you are good to go.

You do not have to run your pump 24/7  usually 6-8 hours a day is more than enough.
