    My chemical pump won't prime. I think my meter cracked. Anyway to bypass it to get my pump to prime till my new one arrives?

    Did it just come unthreaded or did you break the 3/8" pipe? I carry stuff to fix on the truck.

    You can jump the hoses together to prime, losing ability to monitor flow rate.

    You are correct there. I’m back up and running. Thank goodness I have a lot of tools.

    Sam. Check your Orings down around your pump also.

    Might want to start replacing all those fittings. My experience has been if one is bad they are all bad or going to be soon.

    Good point! I took off the lower fitting to bring to the hardware store and it was bad also.
