Water bugs, swimming insects and sweat bees.
Foaming bubbly water. Frogs in the pool.
Dead animals in the swimming pool.

I have air comming from my return jets, like fiz in the water… I have replaced my “inlet” piping, put gasket maker around the joints. Replaced the pump lid gasket.

I see two turbulent vortex in the bracket lid… I have a super pump Hayward. Is this normal?

Yes on most over powered under filtered systems this is normal.
So despite all your hard work you still have air getting in somewhere.
I may not give you the answer you want to hear, but I will give an honest opinion of your situation as you decribe it.

Yes, you are seeing a bit of turbulence. The bubbles are not necessarily coming from your return jets. They may be coming from your skimmer or from a small leak from around the lid. Best thing is to start from the beginning and first make sure you do not have a hole or crack in your lid. If this is all good, try putting some thin silicone around the sides of the lid where it seals to the pool. Also, if you have hard water, you may have a small leak around the top fitting on the lid. You can use some clear silicone to plug this hole.

What? The skimmer lid isnt sealed, do you mean the pump pre fiter lid? Doesnt really matter as the thread is old but checking you know what you are talking about.

Use silicon grease on your pump pre-filter lid "O" ring not silicon, you'll never remove it
