Thanks in advance to everyone in this forum.
When I cleaned my pool filter, the manual said to tighten the bolt holding the filter together down so the 2 nuts were within 1/4 - 1/2". I had measured the distance before I took apart the filter and it was more like 1 1/4" or something like that. There was a pretty big gap before. So I tried to follow the instructions and tightened it down more.
When I removed the filter I had inspected the gasket and it seemed to be in good condtion.
There has been a smalll leak from the gasket seal area - and it seems to have increased a little.
I'm assuming that I should just open up the filter again - try to reseat the seal in a different position - then see if that stops the leak. And maybe not make the gap so small since maybe that's over tightening?
Am I supposed to apply some type of Silicon or something to lube the seal also? I don't remember seeing that in instructions regarding closing the filter after cleaning...
