    Air in Suction Side

    Please pump is drawing air from somewhere on the suction side.

    Things I have done thus far.......
    1. replaced all seals in Hayward super pump
    2. re-plumbed all of the piping from the skimmer to pump...yes...dug new trench and set new pipe....I have only one pipe from pool to pump on suction side....skimmer to bottom drain.....(under ground spring)

    All of this helped and improved the problem about 50% but not completely.....

    ANY ONE GOT A SUGGESTION PLEASE ADIVSE !!!!!...sorry just frustrated with the whole thing....

    If there is already a thread for this issue please someone point me the way.......

    Thanks for any and all responses...

    Welcome! How about checking the o ring under the pump basket lid or lubing it? Any cracks in that housing?
