Recently our pump motor seized and I ordered and replaced the motor and impeller assembly. Pretty easy job, everything went back in just like it should...

But now the water isn't flowing! The morot is working, both speeds, but nothing gets pushed through the jets. I have loosened the connections to try to purge the air, and bubbles come out of the lines after I run the pump for a minute, but after about 20 minuted of trying this over and over, I still have not a hint of flow.

Any ideas? Is this simply a crapload of air in the line? Seems like it shouldn't be this bad...

On a side note, I took off the intake connection and water wasn't flowing from it. Waster was pouring back out of the impeller from the other line, but the intake seemed to just let a bit of water out, then be done. The filter is removed at the moment... is there a valve that could be stuck or something?

Would LOVE some help or suggestions!!
