I have a 15k SWG in ground pool with 3 return jets and a pressure side return (I don't use this anymore because I have a robot). I'm trying to figure out what is causing my return jets to have air bubbles coming out of them every 5-10 seconds. I don't have any "unions" coming from my three suction side lines going to the pump basket. I've checked the drain plug on my pump and it is tighten all the way. The only thing that I can come up with that may be the cause is my pump basket lid. I've noticed that when I take it off, the gasket comes falls out often (I was told this shouldn't happen). When I screw the lid back on, the lips on the lid only screw on about halfway on the pump basket lip edges before it gets tight and I'm not able to screw it on completely where the lips are fully engaged onto the pump basket lips. It "feels" tight but I'm assuming the lid must be warped a little because my spa pump lid screws on all the way. It is tight enough to catch a prime though, but I'm wondering if that may be the cause of the air bubbles coming out of my pool return jets? If not, I don't know what else it could be!
