New pool. Equipment:
TA60 sand filter
3 lines coming into pump - Skimmer 1, Skimmer 2, & Main drain
Would get help from pool contractor but can't currently. Long story.
Problem - I was keeping VS-3050 @ "2" speed setting. Red low flow indicator lighting up on IC-20. Removed IC-20. Cleaned out some debris. Resultant air in line. Have to re-prime.
Filled filter basket of pump with water. Ran pump on speed "4". Pump primed with little to no air in pump basket viewer. Bled air from filter. Flow light green on IC20.
Within 1-2 days, water level in pump drops with increase in amount of air. Turn pump off and then back on speed 4. Air removed again and works. But then this happens again in 1-2 days. Then get red low flow light on IC-20.
Why does air slowly creep back into pump? We have a separate spa with separate VS-3050 pump. Doesn't happen to spa. Any easy fix?
Also going on vacation for a week. When this happens, I always increase pump speed and remove air. Haven't let this go on for a week. My concern - pump fills with air over 1 week. Can this happen, damaging pump?
