I backwashed my pool and added DE this weekend. Now I am having issues with lots of air in the line. The pool pump lost prime only once, but there are a lot of bubbles in the pump and coming out of the jets in the pool.

Did you remove the lid from the pump basket? Did you lube the lid O ring before replacing it?

Sounds like you have a suction side air leak.
