    Possible air leak?

    Today when I turned the system back on after backwashing I noticed the cover over the basket chamber tighted up but immediately lost suction. I could see the cover suck in then loosen. It still seems tight, and doesn't leak when system is off. Could this be that the gasket needs replacing?

    The o-ring could just need lubing or it could need replacing. You could also have an obstruction in the skimmer line.
