Unhappy Pool Filtration Problem

New Hayward Self-Priming Max Flo Pump just installed. Starts up, is not filtering any water??? No air leaks or cracks. No safelty button on. Water wont stay in pump/strainer housing area. Unable to fill canister in filter, wont hold the water. What is the problem? Have replaced and sealed PVC several times.

for starters , if you havn't ....install a jandy check valve on the suction side of the pump, make sure the line to the skimmer is not clogged, and make sure the skimmer weir blade is not stuck , and make sure there is enough water in the pool. also make sure there are no valves on return side that are closed.
