    Pentair SD80 sand filter leak

    Just found my sand filter leaking and after checking all the connections found the leak coming from the bottom.After vaccuming all the sand out and removing the shell found the bottom seam pulled apart!!
    Anyone ever seen this or have any idea what could cause this??

    Sounds like a manufacture's defect. I've seen a couple other similar posts this year. You might want to call Pentair with your model and year of purchase. Perhaps they'll help you out?
