Filter Leaking

tonys_2009December 27, 2010

I can't win this year with my pool. Pump went out and the 2 speed relay is sticking. Now I noticed a small drip of water on my Hayward 6020 DE filter. Its leaking where the pipes go in on the side of the filter. The unions are tight. Is there a gasket in there? Its a tiny leak but I want to fix it.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

1) Make sure the union nut is not cracked.

2) There is an O-ring. It may have flattened, may be less than perfectly aligned, or the cartridges may need cleaning.

3) Cold may have contributed.
