My filter makes a percolating or gurgling sound like air is getting in

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

We it seems ike its gotten a little worse but it has always done it sinc I bought the house four years ago

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not sure probably

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I can say this on two occasions the pool guy left the trap lid on loosely and the pump overheated just like this past tuesday, the last time the heat built up and created pipe joints to fail. I think I need to fire him

Contractor's Assistant: Who manufactured the pool?

??? its probably 30 years old

T​he gurgling sound is usually from air being drawn into the pump after the pump has pushed some water. The best way to correct this is to remove the air from the filter so the pump only has water to circulate. Many filters have air release valves on or near the pressure gauge, however many do not. If you do not have one I highly recommend installing one so you can correct this problem and save the pump from overheating.
