    Air bubbles from a single return

    I get sporadic air bubbles from just one of my returns. Nothing for a few hours and then its will bubble for a few more. I let the air out of the filter to with no results.Should I be worried? It began to appear after my solar was installed.

    Worried? No. How high are the panels off the ground? Sometimes you see this and it can be cleared up by running a little more water to the panels with the diverter valve.

    Are you sure it is not the "champagne bubbles" from your IntelliChlor? Short run/well plumbed pools will show some bubbles when the cell cycles on.

    It is the IC40. It only bubbles when the cell is making Chlorine. I guess I have a well plumbed short run pool. Great!
