    Hello and welcome to TFP! If I'm reading your problem correctly, you had a leak detection company make a repair on the return side, but now you are seeing an air bubble(s) at the pump correct? If that's the case, you probably have a suction-side air leak that's letting a small amount of air into the line from the poolside skimmer/main drain to the pump strainer basket. I would recommend reviewing the Pool School - Suction Side Air Leaks page for some ways to resolve that issue. Good luck, and have a nice day.
