***** I just thought I should move this thread to this section as I now know it is a repair needed. Please see the next two replies. *****
Whenever my pool filter shuts off, I get massive air bubbles that return to the pool via the skimmer. The result is that everything that was skimmed gets blown back into pool. I have an issue where my pump has many bubbles in the pump skimmer basket, tiny bubbles return through jets, and you can hear lots of gurgling in the sand filter when the pump shuts down. I can even hear some gurgling noises deep down near the skimmer.
Do I have an air leak on the intake line. It is getting very frustrating because I can't even vacuum my pool without losing suction. We have so much rain lately and some good wind storms that I have the clearest dirty pool in the neighborhood. I can see all the dirt in the bottom of my pool so clearly.
Help, me. I'm about ready to call the dump trucks and fill the thing in.
