    Haywood Cartridge Filter problem

    After cleaning the filter today it seems that even though I get it tight the thing doesn't leak it gushes. It feels like the cartridge is sitting correctly. I really don't know what is the problem. It seems that when I put the cartridge in that one side is a tiny bit higher. I don't know why. I then thought that maybe it is the cartridge so I changed it out and the same problem.

    I can't think of what it could be but I need to pool done and getting very frustrated. Any ideas for me to try?

    Only thing I can think of is to double check the filter placement and check the rubber gasket for the top lid

    Thanks. The gasket is fine. The filter seems to be in there like it is suppose to but when I put the top on is when the top looks a little higher on one side. I can't figure it out.

    If you could post some pics it would be easier to make suggestions. I would make sure the sealing surfaces are clean. I know I've found some tiny pebbles in mine resulting in a leaks.

    Re: Haywood Cartridge Filter problem

    Have a Hayward cartridge filter as well and the first time I cleaned it I had the same problem. No matter what I did I couldn't get it to stop leaking. I took the gasket off the bottom half and found a bunch of sediment that I had missed. Removed the gasket, cleaned the lip and the gasket and was fine. Also found that you really need to torque down the joining bolt on the ring pretty good to make a nice seal.
