    Pures SMBW Filter Leaking from Discharge Tube

    I have a Pures SMBW filter that is leaking from the Discharge tube and a little from under the filter near the center of the discharge handle?

    Is there a gasket or O-Ring kit to repair this leaking?

    Welcome, Bob!
    Is this your filter?

    It looks like there may be an O-ring at the bottom that can leak. I know after I backwash sometimes I get a drip out the waste port. Moving the handle back and forth a little a few times gets it to seal for me. It's just some grit or DE caught somewhere.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
