I have a new intex 10' x 30 metal frame pool, and also an old intex filter pump of 530 GPH.
it worked ok for a few days, and then the water flow that is returning to the pool was not constant,
like there is air in the system.
I did bleed the air from the pump when it was off.
I played with the pump a little, trying to bleed the air many times, and the water flow is now constant, but looks like
there is still air in the top of the pump.
When the pump is working and i open the air release valve, there is no water coming out.
Is it not supposed to have water coming out from the air release valve when it open, even when the pump is running?
I have the new pump that came with the pool (330 GPH), and i know it's a lot weaker, but it makes a nice water flow
at the outlet nozzle, and when i open the air release valve while pump is running, water is coming out.
I made a video of the outlet nozzle when the pump is running (the 530 GPH). it looks like the water flow is not smooth like it was
a few days ago.
What do you think? (sorry for the video quality, i'll try to find a better camera)
Other than that, i see no air in the hoses, and the pump does filter the water.
Also the pump make a regular noise.
