How do you prime a jet pump?

Answer

This is how to prime a jet pump. Start by making sure that connections are tight. This prevents loss of priming. Make sure the pump and pipes are completely filled with water to prevent the presence of air which can effect pressure and priming. If the air does not get removed, the pump will not prime. Once all air is removed and water is in place, prime the pump. It should produce water within five minutes. If not, repeat the steps.
