It appears I need a new filter. I noticed I was constantly having to bleed air from the filter, and despite checking all my pipes for leaks there were none. Then I noticed the paver my filter sits on was sinking. Sure enough, when I cleared the leaves and gravel away from the base of the filter there was a nice puddle. Checked everything and it appears there must be a crack on the bottom of the filter creating a slow and constant leak. Great.
Anyone want to recommend a new filter to me? It would be great if I could find one that is shorter then the clean and clear 150. Currently, I have everything but the filter under the deck. The dang filter was too tall to fit.
