I know very little about my pool or the equipment. I purchased my home two months ago and it took almost that long for me to get a handle on the green swamp of a pool that had been neglected for who knows how long.
Thanks to this site, I have a good handle on my chemicals, a good test kit and now a sparkling clean pool. My question is... Ever since I changed the sand in my filter, I get bubbles in the pool from the inlets when I turn on the pump. And when I put the navigator in, the filter fills with air very quickly, I am constantly releasing pressure. I do have a small drip at the filters belly band, The O ring is new. I applied lube, but some sand stuck to it when putting it all back together. Is this the cause for the air in the system maybe? Do I need to take it all apart and make sure every tiny grain of sand is off the O ring before sealing it back up? Everything was fine prior to the sand change so I'm convinced it's something I did or didn't do when I changed the sand.
30,000 gallon In ground, concrete. Pentair sand filter. 2hp pump. four floor inlets, four side wall inlets, one skimmer.
