When I try to vacuum, the pump pulls water through but then loses suction. I can not find anywhere that air can get in the system. New hose, No obvious leaks. The pump is otherwise working well.

When you hookup vacuum you prime hose and then attach vac. hose?
After attaching vac. hose, does it reprime attached or only unattached.
Do you have a shallow skimmer and hose can stick out of water?
Have you greased or replaced pump lid o-ring?
Do you have diverter valve in skimmer that vac. hose attaches to?
Do return lines blow air when running normal?
Do you loose more water than normal?
