Hello everyone, first post to TFP.
Moved in to a new house 2 weeks ago, and we noticed a leak coming from the backwash hose on our Purex Triton tagelus ta100d sand filter. We opened up the filter, and noticed the spider gasket was ruined. We ordered a new one and installed it, and the channels where it sits were in good shape.
However, there is still a small leak from the backwash.
Things I noticed (not sure if they're relevant)
After I turn the pump off, there seems to be suction from the backwash port for a minute. All the water also drains out from my pump if I change the multiport position.
Also, my heater won't turn on (shows a lo error), which I think is from the reduced water pressure(filter psi gauge doesn't show anything)
