Thread: Air bubbles in the pump

    Air bubbles in the pump


    this morning I attempted to vacuum my above ground pool and mistakenly I let some air to get inside of the system. I can see few bubbles in the motor and small streams of bubbles coming out from the return every 2 seconds more or lees. What should I do?

    Open the air bleed on the filter, if you have one.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thanks Richard for your quick response!

    Sorry I couldn't answer you right away, I was invaded by a bunch of friends!!. Well... apparently my filter doesn't have any air bleed and I looked around twice, the good thing is that the bubbles disappeared in 30 minutes leaving only one "stable" bubble in the motor, when I mean stable is because it looks like a device level. The filter sopped doing that squishing sound and no bubbles are coming out from the return. In this case is ok to leave it as is or should I keep looking the way to get rid of the big bubble inside of the motor?
