SOURCE: I lost water pressure in my swimming pool line and

If your pump is blocked in any way (usually a closed valve), then the pump cannot keep water flowing. It could be starved of water if blocked on the suction side, or an air leak. On the return side, it's usually a ``dead head`` pipe, or a closed outlet valve. In either case, the pump can overheat and actually boil the water within it. In that case, the fittings attached to it can deform and cause bigger air leaks, which compounds the problem. If you replace the fittings, reconnect the pipe and remove any blockages, you should be fine.

My pressures low

Low water volume will cause low pressure. Check for any obstructions in the suction libe and/or minor leaks that will cause the pump to **** air. If everything checks out, make sure the water is actually flowing thru the sand. If you suspect the water is bypassing thru the multi-port valve or a tunnel in the sand: pour a cup of flour in the skimmer, if you see it return thru the returns, you have your verification.

If you have a pressure gage it would help .. if the pressure is high then there is probably an obstruction in the return pipe to the pool .. if the pressure is low then there is most likely a restriction in the supply or suction side of the pump .. this would seem more likely to me from your description, there may be something obstructing the flow into the pump, a clog, a collapse hose from the suction, some flap of pool liner .. something like that ..

In-g pool loss of pressure and bubbles from return line any ideas

If you notice bubbles in the water returning into the pool from the eyeball/discharge, or water in the strainer basket is visibly swirling (bubbles visible) odds are you need you replace the o-ring on the lid of the strainer basket in the front of the pump. This basket may also be clogged with debris, which also effect pressure. Could also be a cracked or warped strainer lid. Should be easy to see when you remove to check o-ring. Once you remove the strainer o-ring make sure you lube it with a good silcone based lube.

Low return pressure

if you are referring to the the guage on the filter, this is really too high. You should backwash and would like to see it down to 8-12. if not, have you changed your sand?. I like to change it every other year.
