I just got my cascade 1500 and it will not prime to get started. I tried everything in the directions. My question is, the hoses seem crimped because the hole on my stand is at the bottom but it connects to the filter higher up. Is it unable to get started because gravity is not working in my favor? I think I'm going to drill holes at the top of the stand to fix this, but will it fix it? I've messed with it for hours and have gotten no where. Well except for almost flooding my house. I'm just so disappointed and frustrated at this point. Any advice is appreciated.
