First off, many thanks to the wealth of information that has been collected and shared on this site. I'm a new pool owner, and have learned a lot already.
I just had my 21' above ground pool installed this past Tuesday. The pool installer had to come back out because of some leaks I found from the pump and skimmer box, which he fixed. Now, however, my 2 speed hayward pump leaks from the basket lid, but only on low speed? I primed the pump... There is a quarter size air bubble in the basket.
Why would the basket only leak on low speed? I've read about luring the gasket for a Better seal. Is this something I may have to do even for new equipment?
