Air bubbles and not much pressure from filter.Pump motor o.k

Our pool is circulating water with a lot of bubbles. Filter does not seem to be functioning to capacity. Cannot run automatic vacuuming system. Not enough pressure to keep the vacuum going around the pool. Could this be air in filtration system or do we just need a new filter. This one is about 10 years old. Never any trouble before.

:shock:
Bubbles = air in filter!
You will damage your pump if you continue to run it.
Check all connections for leaking or dripping.
