Possessed pump?

My hypothesis:

The pump created a vortex in the skimmer due to low water level. It then started sucking air. The air got trapped in the filter and got pressurized. Eventually, the pump lost prime and stopped pumping and all that compressed air pushed back.

Yes and I have been wondering if I should add water here soon or not what is the level that I should keep the water at in the pool

54 inch by 27 foot round above ground pool.

Do it again! That was fun! NOT! :shock: I bet you were scared!!!

Add and keep your water at the halfway mark on the skimmer. I use one of my screws as my mark.
