Question Pool Pump Pounding

We awoke today to hear our pool pump go on and start pounding ... similar to what I imagine indoor plumbing pipes might sound like with air in the pipes. Along with the pounding, the unit was vibrating ... Pressure gauge was at about 20 ... Our "troubleshooting guide" listed noise issues from the pump described as "screeching", but nothing about "pounding". We shut off the pump ... Any suggestions as to what we should do to further diagnose the problem?
Thank you for any assistance!

is it actually the pump pounding or do you have a heater?
