there is a tiny crack in the pipe that connects the skimmer hose to the basket that attatches to the motor. I am guessing that may be it? would that be right? I know I am not using right terminology....

I replaced the part that was cracked....thought I would be home free when I saw the basket fill with water and no air at all. But low and behold the return was still shooting bubbles. I took apart everything. all fittings checked o rings did all the tips and hints to find out where air is getting in. put it all back together and still have bubbles. less bubbles but bubbles. I am not sure what to do next.

Is your skimmer weir operating freely or is your skimmer creating a vortex and sucking air in that way?

Did you lube the o-ring on the pump strainer basket lid?
