2.4 INITIAL ADJUSTMEMTS, CHECKS, MD SELF TEST.
Do not operate pump unless casing is
filled with water to level of suction
p o r t .
Operating a dry pump will cause overheating and damage unit.
The pumping assembly must be primed before initial startup.
Once primed, repriming
is not needed unless the pump loses prime because of a leak, hoseline or pipeline
break, or disconnection for maintenance.
If the pumping assembly is to be operated
as a standalone unit or source pump,
manually prime the pump by filling with water
through the pump fill plug or priming port cap.
If the pumping assembly is to be
operated as a boost pump,
it will receive priming water from the upline pump; but
trapped air must be released through the discharge elbow.
