    Question on leak fixes

    Now that my water is crystal clear thanks to this helpful forum, on to fix other things.

    I have noticed during my slam I keep losing water, and had hoped it was only due to me removing the cartridge to clean it. But I topped off again yesterday and am down to 1/4 skimmer when I was nearly 2/3 yesterday.

    I can only see 2 clear signs of drips, one from the return as seen here

    And I see some water pooling around the seal on my filter housing

    I ordered new seals for the hayward filter, but what should I do on the return? Should I just replace the entire assembly? Do I need to drain down for that?

    A new seal will probably do wonders for the filter.. On the return/suction it looks like it is all screw fitting where the leak is, you may be able to unscrew everything and use monster tape on the threads 2 PACK- Milrose 70885 Blue Monster 1/2 Blue Teflon Tape: Office Products
