Can I run my pump without water?

Waterway pumps should never operate without water. The pump seal assembly in the pump volute (area between the strainer basket and the pump motor) protects the pump motor from pool water. This seal assembly gets hot and is cooled by the pool water. If the pump is running without water, the seal will overheat and melt, if left running without water for a long period of time, the heat generated could damage the PVC pipe and other system components.
