Ok, so my pool was remodeled two weeks ago. Everything was running fine, until this past weekend. The valve was moved for the returns to the old spa jets and I ended up having water leaking at the SWG as the pressure was higher with the spa jets. About 25psi.
Fixed the SWG, tighten it up. I also lubed the SWG o-rings and the pump lid o-ring.
Since then, I seem to be pulling air into the pump and the filter is filling with air as well. All new equipment was installed (pump, filter, SWG) and connected to existing copper pipe and valves. Also a new skimmer was installed.
When I turned off the pump last night, after trying to trouble shoot, I noticed the system was burping air from the pump inlet.
Any ideas on what it might be?
I have Ortega 3 port valves in the copper pipe, they are old. Might need new seals, but not sure they would pass enough air? They never show signs of water leaking out at any point.
Will call the pool builder to take a look as well.
