My 1st post here. I've been lurking for about 3 years now and this site has made my pool a trouble free pool.
We've been experiencing bubbles in the jets the last couple of weeks. The water level was low, so added water.
Still lots of bubbles. Checked the pump filter cover, cleaned and lubed the gasket and double checked the installation of
it. Still bubbles in the pump filter and in the jets. Checked it today and the pump is only pulling about half of the water
into it. I've turned off the skimmers and main drain valves to isolate the leak, but none of those changed anything. The only
thing in common with this is the pipe that connects from the valves to the pump. At the pump intake I can hear a hissing
when the pump is turned off, and I can see the water level in the pump go down.
I'm pretty confident that the leak is at the pvc to pump connection. How is this connected? Is it the white pvc glued to a
black part which is screwed to the black pump housing? And how to take this apart and reseal it? Will I need pvc pipe, etc...
I've attached a couple pictures of the setup.
Thank you for your help,
