There has been a slow leak from our filter since we moved into our home 6 months ago. The other day, I noticed that it was leaking considerably more. I had our pool guy check on it and he discovered that the filter head has a hair line crack that is spewing water now. Being a new pool owner, I feel like I'm going only by what our pool guy is telling me. He is recommending to change out the whole unit for a cartridge unit (Hayward $450 installed) and not mess around with just replacing the parts. It is an older unit, I should add. I'm not so sure I want him to decide what filter we go with. I like to research the heck out of my purchases especially bigger ones but this needs attending to now. So here I am am. I'm leaning to just replacing the filter head. What would you suggest? Should we just suck it up and go for it?
Sorry for the lack of pool specs...I've got a pool guy
but hoping to change that soon.
