Sounds like you have air entering the system. Check the return line for cracks or a loose fitting.

With the pump making noise could it be sucking air in at the shaft seal and not leaking fluid ?

Tenspeed for it to be foaming the fluid it would be sucking air in on the suction side of the pump. Would you agree to this statement? As far as I can tell its not leaking fluid from anywhere. The shaft seal could be he cause. What do you think?
