I have a two speed Whisperflo pump that I believe I have an airleak, as I can run the pump on high fine, but the strainer basket lowers 2 inches or so after about 2-4 hours when I run it on low. Also, my water is VERY cloudy, at night with the light on it seems obvious that it is just tiny air bubbles floating around????
So my questions, are these to things related? As far as leak detection, I am struggling there too. I read the pool school on leak detection. I need to lube the lid seal, as it sounds like that is my most probable cause. What is the name of the lube I use for that and where do I purchase? I have 1 compression fitting that attaches to my pump from the 3 intake lines (1 main drain, and 2 skimmers). I replaced that back in May, but have not had any problems with an air leak until now. That compression fitting is my second guess?
I have added pvc cement to all joints on the suction side, I have tried to use the dribble water method with no success, and my water does not seem to be going down.
I plan on lubing that lid seal, and am probably making this more difficult than I need, but thought I would post just to make sure I am on the right track.
Thanks for your help.
