Can't prime the pool after winter, I changed all the gasket

Customer Question

can't prime the pool after winter, I changed all the gasket around the pump. got it to run for about 4 hours then the flow stopped again. I fill the skimmer with water and start it, it almost goes then skimmer empties. When I shut it off to start over the basket fills with water. when I take cover of skimmer basket I hear a lot of air escape. Any idea what to try next ? thanks !!!
