    Air in strainer

    Yesterday after using a vacuum in the pool for the first time i now notice there is air in the strainer just a little on top. It was filled all the way to the top before using the vacuum and i cant seem to get it back to full. Is it a big deal?

    DO you use a vacuum plate so you can leave your skimmer basket in place while vacuuming? Have you cleaned the pump strainer basket?

    The strainer basket is clean and i left the strainer basket in while vacuuming. It is a intex vacuum that you screw on to the intake inside the pool it didnt say remove the strainer.The pump seems to be running fine and the pressure is good it just has i little bit of air in there that wasnt there before.
