The bubbles and leak may not be connected. A suction side leak will not leak water when the pump is on so leave the pump on for 24 hrs and see if you have the same leak. It should only leak water out when the pump is off. A return side leak is faster with pump on vs off. If it is the same with the pump on or off, it is probably not in the plumbing.
Thanks. Refilled the pool today. Blocked main drains so it's only pulling from the skimmers. Set for 72 hour boost (Because it needs it) and that way the pump stays up round-the-clock.
