if you are getting air bubbles at the returns, you have a suction leak before the main pump.

air bubbles at the jets...

i am not sure if i know the terminology, but the air bubbles are shooting out into the pool through the jets that shoot water back into the pool

Yes Jets/returns same thing most people refer to jets in a hot tub. More than likely you have a suction leak, if your pool has solar you can also get air at the returns also.

the best way to find the leak if you cant see it or hear it is to do a air test and that will take someone like www.leakdetectors.com to do it.
