The microbubbles are coming from somewhere. Causing air to be mixed in the water. It won't be the actual pump itself causing. Usually the more powerful the gyre the lower you have to mount it. It will suck air from the surface. Sometimes it's obvious with a little cyclone and noise. Sometimes it's subtle.
