Question about Jet Plumbing
Yes, any air leak could allow the pumps system to draw air in to it. This could happen through a gasket or the mechanical seal although if the foot valve is in good shape and there are no leaks within the piping system the pump should hold prime. My guess is there is some type of leak within the suction piping that is creating a slight vacuum. A vacuum leak, even a small amount, is very powerful at drawing air in to it. My first thoughts are to insure the suction piping and its components are all proper.
I hope this may have helped,
