When the pump shuts off from its normal run cycle, the water in the basket area slowly drains and after several hours the water level is visibly low in the basket.
Shouldn't the water stay at or near full in the basket? If thats the case I suspect a small leak in the new plumbing letting air into the plumbing.
As a temporary remedy, I have the pump set to run on high for 2 minutes to refill the basket area, establish prime, and then kick over to low mode.
Is my thinking correct on this or is it normal for water to leave the basket? I dont remember this happening on the previous pump.
