Air continually come from solar palen return jets

Postby Tamtam » Fri 29 Apr, 2016 09:02

Hello, I just had my pool opened three days ago. I'm having problems with air coming from my solar panels return jets. The tiny air bubbles lasted for about four hours before I bypassed the solar when all bubbles stopped.... No air was in the pump. While the Solar were on the water continuously ran through the panels making lots of nose (which isn't how it worked before, a mechanical system would control the water and temp). Any advice?

That usually occurs when the post filter pressure has dropped. Is the filter pressure higher than normal? If so, clean the filters and see if that doesn't help.
