I have a sand filter for my 10,000 gallon pool. Here is the problem i'm having. at startup my filter pressure is 10 psi. After running a few minutes I can clearly see bubbles coming into the skimmer pump basket under the clear lid. After running overnight the skimmer is only half or 2/3 full. The pump is below the water level. I made sure the o-ring gasket is lubed and in good condition.
