I've just installed a new O ring on the clear filter lid of my pump as there was an air leak when the pump was turned off (possible also when running).
Previously the water looked like a washing machine under the pump lid, but now once the small air bubbles work their way out it almost looks like there is no water at all under the lid. Is this just a sign that the pump is fully primed or should it still look like a washing machine?
The creepy crawly is still going strong and I can feel water returning from the jets, but no bubbles at all.
Also this week my shutoff valve stoped working so when I open the pump lid water rushes out and I have to remove the basket and close the lid quickly!
