    Try raise the water level in the return chamber if you can.
    The water flowing in from the dsb section makes bubbles which might be getting sucked into the pump and chopped into fine bubbles

    The water level in return chamber should be max 20mm lower than the previous chamber. Else the waterfall will suck bubbles under.

    The increased height will also give you more time before pumps run dry in case the ATU decided to stop working for whatever reason.
