Air bubbles

Pool seems to have excessive air bubbles coming through jets. Can not locate any water leaks and have let all air out of filter cap.

I had a similar problem. Turned out to be a leak in an internal o-ring in a valve just ahead of the pump.

That sure sounds like a suction side leak similar to rww's. Do you have a clear pump strainer basket lid and, if so, can you see bubbles passing through it?

Off the wall, but SWGs produce bubbles.
