Lot of air in pump basket

Recommended Posts

My neighbor complained to me her pump basket would fill with all air in 15 minutes. She had 2 pool companies pressure test the suction lines and they were good. Is 45 minutes of holding pressure good enough? I went over there and checked the impeller,basket gasket,basket drains and fittings and they are all good. I snaked out the line for an obstruction and it was good. It is a 40 year old gunite pool with original DE filter,that had the elements and Valpak backwash valve changed last year. When I ran the pump,it never got to more than 75% water in the basket. Any ideas?
