    The only way air gets into the system is because of a leak. You have a suction side leak somewhere between the pump and the skimmers.

    Did you lube the lid o-ring well? If not, you should do that first.
    If that doesn't fix it you should check the skimmer to see if it's creating a vortex and make sure the weir is working freely. Also check and reseal the drain plugs on the pump.
