Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. If the pumps are cavitating and not sucking in air from the suction side it is a sign of failure. Also check inside the old filter for fine metal/debris confirming failure. It will look like glitter. Let me know the results and if you need more help. Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
