    bubbles in returns

    I get bubbles in all my returns after the pump comes back on in the morning for 10 mins or so, but then they go away. They are small bubbles. It seems that the pot stays full in the pump. I am just asking because everything is under warranty and if there is a problem I want to get it fixed now rather than wait until next year.

    You have a small air leak somewhere......is the pump basket full of water before you turn on the pump? Can you see tiny bubbles in the pump strainer basket (look closely) when the pump is running?

    I will check when I get home, I do notice a small pocket of air, like one bubble the size of a quarter at the top of the pump basket when it is running. That always stays there, but the small bubbles in the returns do go away after like 10-15 mins
