    Sounds like a blockage in the cell or a backwards check valve. Try pouring water through the cell in the direction of flow and see what happens

    Is there enough water in your pool? The surging sounds like your water is too low and it is sucking in air at the skimmer. Filling your pool up a little higher will stop that.
