If it pumps after you prime it, then the impeller should be okay. The problem is that it is either sucking air, or losing its prime when it shuts off. You will have to find where the air is entering the system.

: So here it is January 5th, our anniversery, and I'm drawing a bath for my wife when we lose water pressure. Since we have a pump house down by our lake and it is prone to freezing I go down to investigate to find the the pump is running and the heater hasn'tgien out again. I can prime the pump and it will begin to pump wate. Then,loose pressure and just run. Not being a plumber, but having to deal with this every couple of years it seems, my thoughts were that teh impeller was shot. Anyone with any helpful thoughts?

: Thanks
