Default Call me an idiot!

Last yr I installed a fool proof way to run the motors on the hose w/o screwing around with muffs. You know the system, a tee in the supply hose hooked to a garden hose adapter located by each motor. VERY SIMPLE, even a beginner can operate it and not burn up an impellor. With twin motors, you have 2 of these hose adapters. So I hook it up to the one I want to run, turn on the hose, verify water coming out the drive, then start the motor. 30 sec later the wife says it's still coming out the drive. WHAT?

Had a 50/50 chance of starting the correct motor.


I failed.
