    I'm measuring .69 amp draw on high speed. I thought that's a bit low since it's spec for almost 2 amps. The 2nd pump is dead, I was going to use it to flush. It's still burping air on one pump. Going to measure flow next.

    The single pump works, so it looks like air lock. Nothing coming from loop side. Will have to make a flush cart.

    oh thank god, I disassembled the pump and found rust stopping the impeller from spinning. Cleaned it up and we have flow. So you can indeed flush a small loop with 2 26-99's. Will turn on the system once it's all purged. I suspect rust formed because I let it sit for many years unused.

    Hooked to heat pump. Only been running 15 mins, ewt 49.5f. So relieved I didn't have to build a flush cart. pump draw is .79 each
