    Losing water through backwash hose

    I'm losing water through the backwash hose even if the handle is on filter. There is also a little bit of water around the handle. I'm thinking, I may need to change the gasket of the filter. If my model of filter can be changed. I've never done this. So I really need step by step instructions please. Thank you










    15 feet round, above ground pool, sand filter (jacuzzi L 192c-7c) with hayward motor

    You can plug the hoses with winterizing plugs, or a cork, or maybe even try ramming a carrot in the openings to plug them.

    If you look on youtube, there are lots and lots of videos that show how to replace a spider gasket.

    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.

    Thank you Richard320, I think that will work for the rest of the summer and in the fall when I close the pool I can open the filter and change it. I'll check out youtube. ty
