    The priming pump have a problem with tearing and leaking, remove and either blank off or shorten if possible. I have done this before and sealed with den braven silicone. If you blank off, just syphon to prime pump into a bucket, close valve when cannister is full and place pipe back into tank and power up again opening the valve. You may have some air come through at first but works 100%. The prime pump has a one way valve which when pump is running is suppose to shut off prime pump but these dont seat properly and cause pressure on priming pump causing a leak.
