    Leaking filter help and replacement suggestions

    We noticed last night that the filter at the house we're renting was spraying a fine mist of water out through a half-inch crack in the side (probably from unexpected hard freeze last winter around here where people don't winterize their pools). The landlord would like to spend less than $600 replacing the filter (including labor which runs $250 here for filter installation if you buy from them).

    Leslie Pools just sent a flyer in the mail with a coupon good only this weekend for 10% off all equipment and 25% off Hayward equipment. What would be a recommendation for a good budget sand filter that would match up to the pump that we have?

    Also, what would be the best thing to do for the filter tank to stop the leak until we get the filter replaced?

    The Pentair Sand Dollar SD 80 or Hayward Pro Series S270T are both good choices.

    Changing a filter is not really that complicated. If you are familiar with piping in PVC then I would save the 250.00 and order online.
