    Suction leak turned out to be A .....

    Warped pump strainer lid on a Leslies ( hayward RS2000 pump )
    The pump got hot last year from failure to prime it's self.
    This pump has big screws with knobs the tighten on ears on the lid .
    When it got hot the pressure warped it very slightly but enough to suck air.
    Been chaseing the leak for a year . Finaly i just bought a new lid for 47 bucks !!!
    And wala !! Oh well chalk up another one to learning !!!!

    I had one of them, I really did not like that lid design. Always squirted water out, but never sucked air in.
