Air Bubbles in the water

Postby swmasson » Sun 03 May, 2020 09:53

Hi there,

I have air bubbles coming out the jets in the pool, it’s causing small air bubbles through out the whole pool and at the jet area, these bubbles are jumping like fizz... this seems to have happened after I cleaned the filters yesterday, I also added 1gallon of natural chemistry “sanitizer & conditioner”...

Does anyone know what’s happened and what I can do to stop the bubbles?

Do the bubbles disperse when the pump stops?
If so you have a suction side air leak. The most obvious place is the pump basket "O" ring, check and lubricate with silicon grease
