air in cartiridge filter body housing

Postby herephishy » Sat 09 Jun, 2007 16:58

I'm having a problem with my Hayward cartiridge filter system. I turn on the system and wait for the cartiridge body to fill up (with release valve open). It fills up and I close the release valve. Within 5-10 minutes the water has left the main body housing and has been replaced with air. I can open the release valve and water will come back, only to be replaced with air shortly thereafter. My water is obviously cloudy since the filter isn't working correctly. Can anyone offer some advice?
