    Tiny air bubbles

    Good afternoon I have a 21 foot pool above ground that we replace the liner in this year and ever since I replaced the liner and hooked everything up I now have all these tiny little air bubbles throughout my entire pool along the sides all on the bottom I'm wondering if its due to the fact that I have no flow control on the return valve as of right now its just blowing into the center of the pool we're not going in a circle around the pool so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with that any help would be appreciated thanks

    SWG is a Salt Water Generator. We like to know the equipment in your pool and how it is configured since that may help answer some questions.

    I asked if you have a SWG because mine after a few hours working, most of the walls in my pool are full of little bubbles. Its normal

    You might have a suction leak. Is the water level in the skimmer to low? Also do you see the water vortex inside the skimmer. If so it could be drawing air in at the point. When you shut off the pump is there water leaking anywhere? If water is leaking on the suction side that will be the source of the air when it is running.
