pool pump looses suction

I have an in-ground pool, and the pump keeps loosing suction.
It will run fine for about 20 seconds and then it happens,the clear top on the filter basket fills with air and it takes about 30-45 seconds to get going and filled with water again, only to repeat the same process. Any ideas??

Air is getting into system from cracked pipe, low water level, bad lid oring, or the male adapter going into front of pump. These are the main causes to check.
