I have a shower
with a drain that has a pump that pumps the water
outside. The problem that I am having with my current
pump is, if it looses its prime, it will not pump until I re-prime it. Which is usually after I have taken my shower
and I am sloshing around in 2 inches of dirty water
So, I need your advise, if you have found the perfect self-priming pump for this application, let me know.
Right now, the drain to the shower is mounted in the floor with a 3/4 inch hose that runs to a pump mounted about 18 inches higher than the floor drain. The type of pump that I currently have, has an impeller that is ran by a small 12volt motor
. I suppose it is possible that my current
pump is ok, may just need a new impeller but the old one looks good, just won't hold a prime.
