    Need New Filter - Recommendations?

    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.

    How high is the deck? Have you looked at what each manufacture offers and are any of them at the correct height?
