How about just running the filter in a bucket of water for a while to see if they go away? I'm really confused as to what would be making the bubbles. It looked like soap bubbles in that one picture but a good rinse should have taken care of that.

I think that is what I will do. I am confused as well, I soaked it for a whole day and then I scrubbed and scrubbed and soaked and scrubbed... lol. Have no idea what is going on with it.

When in doubt, do a water change!

If someone gives good advice, thank them with some rep points!

If the O ring is worn, there will be air getting into the siphon tube. You can pull the valve out, wrap some plastic wrap around it and re insert. I have done this in the past with this type of problem. Hope this is of some help.
