I just bought a house with a pool and don't know much (yet)
evertying was fine for the first couple of days then the water level in the pool got too low. I filled the pool back up but now there are air bubbles in the pump window and return lines in the pool. I cannot get the pump fully primed with water and the pressure on the filter is 0.
the filter is an anthony pools apollo DE filter. There is only one push/pull valve. no diverters or any other valves.
I opened the air pressure valve on the filter, then opened the pump strainer basket (O ring is fine). I filled the basket with water and closed it back up and turned the power back on. Some water is getting sucked into the pump but it is not full like it was before. I've tried to run it with the push/pull valve in the up position and in the down position. I've also run it with the air valve opened and closed. In all combinations, I'm getting some water into the pump but not that much (certainly not as much as before)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
