Brand new pump isn’t suckin in chem… I believe there’s air in the line how do I get it out

just run it. Check all your lines on the suction side, make sure hose clamps are tight, fittings are tight etc

Is your drop stick on the inlet side? Pics?

Use a small length of hose to prime it and get it going. Some have longer inlet hoses because of layout and harder to prime it, so…

Put a 3 way ball valve with a hose on it right after the pump. Run the hose back to whatever you have chems in. If you use proportion valve just run it into a bucket. This allows you to not only get the air out but if you set it up right you can use it to transfer chems without running it though your reel and having to flush 200 foot of hose.
