pool pump loses preasure

I have a hayward pool pump above ground and it keeps losing preasure, it blows out a lot of water for about a half hour and then blows out very little, our fingers in the pump are cleaned but yet it still loses preasure. Can you suggest anything else to do?

Are you getting air in the pump? Do you see bubbles in the strainer basket area? What kind of filter do you have? If you put your filter on recirculate does the pump work?

we have a powder filter, we dont know about the recirculate, were not sure how to do that. There are some air bubbles in the basket. Do you know how to fix that?
