I changed the sand in my Purex Triton filter late yesterday, and with the new back pressure I got a new leak. The back pressure is about 7-10 pounds higher than previously, at 24psi now.
The leak is coming from the seam in the black piece, shoots about 6' high, leaks for about an inch around it's diameter. I can shoot a pic of it in action, or even a video if you need. I'm wanting to know if I take the white screwed union apart, can I tighten the 2 halves of the black fitting or is it a glued piece that will need to be cut loose, new sand drained, and new black piece installed from inside the filter.
