    Lots o' air....

    Replaced the seal on the leaf basket and the seal on the pump basket. Capped off the O2 temporarily. Moved the valve a little to slow the suction at the skimmer.
    All of these things helped a little, but I still have very much air being pumped through the system, so much so that the cartridge filter tank continually traps air.
    What to do next?
    Thanks

    There is an article in Pool School on locating suction side air leaks, in the How To section.

    Thanks, that confirms what I was thinking next, going to see if I can find seals to rebuild the valve.
