I have a new problem...because I just love having problems...
Everything was perfect - no air coming from the jets, no loss - everything sealed tight.
Then yesterday I noticed pretty frequent puffs of air coming from the jets. I'm not 100% positive of how much air I had in the basket this morning - it actually looked like I hadn't lost any, but I can't be sure. I had some big air bubbles blow out of the jets when I turned the pump on after sitting overnight.
I went and checked all the pipes, turned a couple of collars just a shade tighter. Tried with skimmer completely shut off and also with main completely shut off - same issue.
Flipped my inlet valve so my intake was off to the pump and opened the pump lid and immediately lost prime.
Pulled prime no problem. But when I shut it off I then noticed for the first time that there's a little squeak coming from the pump. Not real high pitched or long. Like a little gasp or inhale of air almost.
Any ideas from anyone what in the would this could be? Could the seal on my pump (not the lid) be going??
