lol...well lets pretend that i actually have no idea which end pumps the water and which end returns it on this model. Its an older model and i cant find any literature on it. Maybe this hobby isnt for me after all.I would fill the tube with water and see if the pump blows the water out the other end. lol But before that I would disassemble the pump and clean it.
Did you take it apart and clean it? did you look for oil holes and oil them then manually rotate the motor? An old motor that was not cleaned before storage can sometimes not want to start. The outlet is vertical and the inlet is horizontal.lol...well lets pretend that i actually have no idea which end pumps the water and which end returns it on this model.

I tried filling both ends of the pipe up with water but nothing happens
Do these pumps have oil holes like the Little Giants? Or am I telling him to look for something that's not there?On the back of that pump is a flathead screw that turns the impeller, try to spin it, that will at least tell you if the impeller is bound up. Really not be able to tell unless you hook it up though. Reeflos are notorius for leaking seals so I would check that too.
No worries, this link below is instructions on how to replace the seal but also shows how to disassemble.Thanks for the info guys. This old man is having a tough time with this project! lol
Is there a good video on how to take the reeflo apart? I am not very mechanically inclined!
