I think I have a problem. I recently noticed when the pump is running the water coming out of my pool's jets has tiny bubbles. (Where are the bubbles coming from?). In addition, I have found that overnight when the pump is not running the strainer pot of the pump drains so that when the system powers up in the morning the pump has lost its prime. I have a variable speed pump that does not like starting without a prime so I have to manually restart it several times each morning until the prime catches. The leak seems to be small -- I have not noticed any significant water loss to the pool. I have checked all the seals, valves, and pipes around the equipment area when the pump is running and have found no signs of water leaks or moisture. Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I might further troubleshoot and/or solve this problem.
Thanks for any support.
