last Thursday night my youngest girl had some friends over for a night swim. In the process of trying to turn our 4 corner fountains on she turned the intake off on the pump. Don't think it ran long that night like that cause it is on a timer that turns off around 8. So I go to work the next day and come home for lunch and pool water isn't circulating. Walk out there and open easy touch and water temp is 150. Panic is slowly setting in. That is when I found intake valves closed. I opened them and turned pump back on and everything ran fine but had a leak on the outlet fitting of the pump. Also I was getting air in lines real bad. I Replaces seals in the strainer basket and replaced the one on the outlet of the pump. Had to leave pump off for 24hrs to let silicone set up. I checked it today and I have a small drip on outlet side of pump that I think silicone will stop but the air is still getting in. I have sprayed soapy water around fitting but see nothin. Of course a leak would suck not blow. Also my FC level went to 0 by being off all day. I am hoping that will come up now that pump is on.
How do I find that leak? Also will my Polaris 280 work with air in the system. It didn't seem to want to go to the bottom and clean like it should.
