    Cartridge question

    Hello to All,

    When cleaning my Hayward C4030 4 cartridge system a few days ago, I noticed that one top of one of the cartridges there was a small separation btw 2 of the top concentric rings.

    The top of the cartridges have 3 rings, the bottom 2. In btw the first and second ring [from the ctr], there was about 1-1.5" long in an ellipse of slight separation btw the top inner rings. Does this have any adverse impact on the filtration of the system? After 3 hrs in the heat and humidity, I was cooked. I could, next time in the fall, apply some type of sealant. The separation was really small, like 1/64" if that.

    Thanks

    A picture would be good.

    How old are these cartridges ? I think they be headed to the retirement home.

    The system was installed in Nov 15, but pool was not activated until the end of Jan 2015...so not really that old...The cartridges are installed and pump running
