immediatley after shut off the basket area bubbles and starts to drain. Apparently now it is draining to a point where the pump wont prime in the morning for start up,(the water in the "basket" is halfway or below the lower hole) i add water and bam it primes.
After shut off i can hear it draining in my heat pump and gurgurling in the filter
replaced top cover gasket and greased the in and out gaskets on the pump unions.
I am not seeing any water laying on the pad.
I have been chasing a leak in the pool. I eliminated the skimmer and returns by overnight plugging. So my water level is low and I am NOT using the skimmer right now , only the main drain. (have not closed that up yet to chk for the leak)
could the pump have a bad seal inside with a slow overnight leak?
