    so to answer.... Bubbles out of the return, I thought that it was causing that but once I shut the salt cell off the bubbles coming out of the return go away. Builder is still working through it.

    need advice from TFP on way ahead air bubbles in return line....new construction

    The more I think about it my Ph has been needing adjusted every few days too, I am thinking the air is contributing to that as well. I get it down then it goes back up within a day or two.

    question on winter operations for inground w spillway Texas
