Hey, this morning i came to my pool and i saw watter level dropped down, skimmer baskets floating (no suction) and water was not moving in strainer. I released air from the filter, but strainer is still not full of water, skimmers not sucking good and flow rate and pressure is too low.
Any ideas what to do?
Thanks

Ues, water level is okay now, i try to release air from the filter. It looks like only water starts running trogh the air walve, but if i open it after 10 min, its again air going out

Check the pump basket lid. Be sure the gasket is well lubricated, surface clean, and then securely close the lid.
