I put everything together as per the instructions and after filling up my tank and try for several minutes to prime the system there is no water going trough the tubing.
I notice a small hole on the corner of the intake tube and I suspect that is the problem as I assume there suppose to be vacuum and no air coming in.
Bought on line trough Petco, so tomorrow i will go there to check if they have the model and see if the intake have the same little hole.
Besides that what do you think it might be the problem?
No, there should definitely not be a hole in the intake tube. This could very well be the issue. The unit will prime easiest if it is not plugged in, is filled with water, and you push the prime button in and out, SLOWLY and STEADILY. I capitalized these words because I hear consumers pushing the button rapidly all the time. This does not allow the unit to begin to create the suction needed. Once water starts trickling down the tube, plug the unit into the outlet and let it finish on its own. This will take 1-2 minutes usually.
