Had to replace a small section of pvc coming from filter going to swg now i have air bubbles in
pump basket.I also had drained some water below the jets now they make a sucking sound
at random they are pointed down low enough and there is plenty of water also.This was not
happening till i replaced some water and the sectin of pipe.I dont have any water leaks and the
pump lid is secure i also put some silicone on the gasket.Anyway the sucking noise is getting
old and there is a cyclone that will spin in front of the jets,the water push through the jets is
very good.Please any info would help.
