    Bubbles at my jets

    This I bet is a simple problem to diagnose. And I bet I'm not going to like the answers.

    I am getting air trapped in the cartridge tank which is being discharged in to the pool. I have noticed a very small drips from my cleaner pump, and suspect that I may have a leak else wear. Obviously that is the only way that the air is getting in. Right? If so how is this best remedied?

    The leak has to be on the suction side of the pump. Common places are the pump basket lid seal, drain plugs, low water level in the pool, skimmer weir. Check to see if the skimmer is creating a vortex.

    Not sure what was causing the problem but it seems to have stoped on its own for now.
    It had me concerned as this occurred the day after our first freeze of the year. Although 30 degrees is'nt much of a freeze I know.
