water pressure

I'm having problems with water pressure. My guage on the filter reads 4 psi and fluctuates between 2 and 6 psi. My gas heater does not fire up. Is that because the pressure going through the heater is too low ? The basket in the pump shows half full while the pump is running. How can I increase water pressure going through the pump and filter. I also have tiny bubbles floating to the surface when water comes out of the return line. How can I improve circulation ?

Any suggestions ?

You have air in your filter!
Turn you filter off and check all connections.
Make sure they are all tight, no leaks, not even a drip.
If you see water dripping, thats where the air is coming in from.

Check the O-ring on your pump pot lid. Also make sure the lid it tight. A good way to check this is to watch the lid when you shut the pump off and see if any water comes out around the lid.
