Hello all. I'm a bit ignorant as to what is going on, so allow me to describe.
When my pump kicks on in the morning, I get quite a bit of air blowing through the line into the pool. I assumed this was normal since the filter and pump are above the waterline. But, it seems worse now as my pump basket it draining while off overnight. I did some checking around this morning and found that when I turn the pump off, I can hear air bubbling at the multiport valve. I don't know if it is entering at that point, but could it be? I have a new pump (less than 6 months old) with a good gasket on the basket. And I have a new top on my Sand filter, with a new O ring and pressure guage (again less than 6 months old). I reseated the basket lid on the pump and made sure my filter top is tight just now.
What brought all this to my attention is that starting yesterday, when the pump kicks on, I get the initial bursts of air into the pool (which is somewhat normal for me) but I'm getting some cloudyness into the pool as well. Not a ton of it, and there seems to be no or little sediment with it. Is this caused by the excessive air burping through the filter?
I appreciate any help. Thanks for your time. Sorry for the long narrative.
