This indicates a suction side air leak. Check all plumbing connections especially the pumps suction side connection. Also, if the shaft seal is failing, it will create this scenario as well

Air in whisperflo window, bubbles from pool jets


This is a air leak on your suction side between the skimmer and the pump. You will not see water in the yard on the suction side usually, only the return. It is usually just the fittings around your pump or the seal around the pump lid, check those first and make sure you do not have a loose clamp or a damaged or dry seal. If that is not it then call in your local service guy to determine where the leak is. They will most likely pressurize your suction line to find the leak. Hope that helps.

How do i warm my water up? it just bubbles but does not heat up.?


Regardless of what type of heater you have, when the heater is running the temperature returning to the pool should be slightly warmer than the water in the pool. If you are getting bubbles then you are getting air in the system. This means there is a leak in the suction of the pump. A little air is tolerable but a lot of air reduces the rate of circulation. I am short of information on your system to help you much further. Knowing what pump and heater you have etc. and what its symptoms are will help me provide more help.

Please let us know what we can do for you.

On return line of pool there is a constant air bubbles on fizzing sounds and pool remains cloudy at all times


The cloudiness means you should check the chemistry of the water. If you have test strips it should tell you if you have a problem. The constant air bubbles may or may not be causing cloudiness but they are probable caused by an air lead in the suction side of the pump or the piping leading into it. The pump pot should have a clear lid and if it is clear enough to see through it you are likely to see a lot of air above the water. Because air is being circulated less water is circulated and therefore less chlorine is being provided to the pool. If you need ideas on where to look for leaks in the suction system then just ask. I hope this helps.

The heater,which is only about a month old, is making an excessive splashing sound. I understand that water is flowing over coils, but it wasn't this noisy during the first weeks. Is this normal?


The only 'splashing' you could hear from a heater is air being pushed thru the system. Is your pump basket full of air bubbles? Are you getting air bubbles at the returns in the pool? If so, the noise is from the air going thru the heater...fix the air leak at the pump suction line back to the water inlets to the pump and the noise should cease.

If there is no air you should probably get ahold of a warranty rep to ensure the noise is not from a stuck bypass valve in the heater or improper water connections / poor plumbing hook-up.

Pump surging, air bubbles in return


You have a leak in the suction allowing air to enter and emasculate the pump - find it and fix it!

I see air bubbles in the motor window


Make sure you water level is adequate so as not to draw air through the skimmers. Also, the o-ring on the pump strainer might be bad or debris on it. While the pump is running, shut it off and see if water squirts out of the pump lid or fittings right when it shuts off.

Hayward Navigator sort of floating around by the movement of the water...does not climb walls. Line has suction not sure if its too weak


I consulter the owners manual for this model. This is what they suggest.

First, remove all of the air from the cleaner head and stop all air from entering the pool through the return lines. Also, if the head and hose are covered with bubbles, give the hose a good tug. This will release the air bubbles and allow the pool cleaners to settle son the bottom of the pool. Also, the cleaner head may actually be being lifted off the bottom of the pool by the hose or the pressure in the return lines. Make sure that the hose stays untangled and the pressure from the return lines is not too low (not enought pressure to power) or too high (too much pressure that cause the unit to lift off the floor).

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.
