Excess air in your pool’s pump and filter is the symptom of a problem – one that could be a minor or major fix. Left unaddressed it will cause other problems as well, and those problems could have a minor or major impact.
Is it OK to have air in pool pump?
A few bubbles in the pool or the pump is normal, but noisy churning and lots of bubbles indicate that you have a problem.
Why is my pool blowing bubbles?
A stream of bubbles is a sign of the unwanted presence of air within our pool’s plumbing system. This air is likely the cause of a sucking air leak from a pump, union or diverter gasket. The leaks and the air pockets they form will lower water pressure and greatly decrease the capacity of our filter system.
Why do I have air bubbles in my pool?
Air bubbles occur when the pool’s suction system pulls in the air instead of water from your swimming pool. The air gets into your system before the point where water enters the filter; that is to say, at the skimmer, pump, or the unions.
