Hi all, have a sta-rite pump (1-1/2 hp) with a 21" sand filter, that I just plumbed in, to my metal frame Intex pool. The pump and filter are less than 2 years old. I am getting air, and I suspect the seal around the basket cover, however, it is tight, even after lubing it with dow 111. I am not sure I want to buy a new seal, just to find that it still leaks air (enough to see bubbles in the return).
Anyone else experiencing this problem ?
