It turns out i have a leak on the bottom of my stainless steel filter, just outside where it sits on the stand but before it turns upward if that makes any sense. It's small but it is leaking. I understand that the filter is under pressure so I'm wondering if it would be unsafe to have a welder seal the area and then continue using the filter.
If it absolutely must be replaced, what are the recommendations for a pool my size. I think all the information is in my signature. Of course I'll do some research but narrowing it down would be helpful.
