My pump is about 50 feet away and 10 feet above the pool. So I know it won't be perfect. But it will pull prime within a couple of minutes (running full tilt).
But what doesn't seem right is that if I shut off the pump and wait just 10 seconds and start the pump up again, I don't get instant water flow but after about 20 seconds it will hammer out some giant water bubbles for a few seconds.
Now, I realize will all the height and head necessary that everything won't be without air here and there. But I'm struggling with where that much air could come from in 10 seconds time unless there's a huge leak somewhere.
Do I just have unrealistic expectations? Or can someone help point me in the right direction because my pool builders (this pool was just installed in the fall) are pretty much useless.
