    Possible causes for DE leaking into pool

    Hi,

    So I got my Hayward ec65 taking apart looking for what could be causing de leaking into the pool. Didn't see any tears in the fingers and everything looked good. What else could have caused the leak? Could the gasket have gotten unseated?

    Thanks in advance!

    Assuming you speak of the big o-ring on the body of the filter, it is on the "dirty" side of the filter, if its leaking, it will leak on the ground. I have not played with the head. I would be interested to hear what an expert says.

    The diaphragm gasket that is around the nest of tubes/fingers.

    Could be the gaskets in the backwash valve as well.
