    Hairline crack in lid of pump strainer basket - causing suction side leak??

    I can see a small hairline crack near the screw.

    Would that cause a suction side leak?? I have bubbles in my strainer basket and returns.

    I tried shaving cream but i couldn't see it being sucked in.

    It certainly could, but whether it does or not might depend on what pump and whether the crack is outside the seal and whether it affects the tightness of the lid.
