Leak in backwash pipe?

Good afternoon,

I’m trying to determine where a leak In my pool is and I have noticed that when I open my backwash valve water slowly falls out.... my backwash is connected to a pipe that hooks into my sewer line so this valve is usually not opened I just opened it to see what would happen. Does this mean that there is possibly a leak in my backwash valve and the could be the problem ?

Also, could I have a leak in the return or I take pipes if there is zero bubbles?
