Just a Guess
Do you have the original Paar type pump? Big motor and belt drive. The only thing I can think of is that there is a problem with the diaphram or valve and it is just pumping air back and forth in the system.
This might explain why you can hear air coming out of the fresh-water fill and yet have no water pressure.
Just thinking off the top of my head.
