    Jandy Cartridge Filter

    I don't mind cleaning this filter but putting it back together without leaks is a problem. Any tricks to keep from dripping?

    Last time I did mine, I couldn't the top on flush....I had to have my daughter help me. I pushed down on the top section while she put the ring in place that "locks" it. While I held it, she turned it and it locked, and the drip stopped. I'm not sure what your filter looks like if it's similar to mine...but the top section has to be flush with the bottom before shutting or it will drip.

    Thanks, I'll be sure to check on this next time.

    Like any filter clean, you should remove the tank o-ring, wipe it and wipe the channel on the tank bottom and tank lid. This filter has a tank o-ring that is not round. It has a flat side. Make sure you seat it properly. If it is more than a year old, it may need replaced.

    Is that just a Jandy thing? My filter doesn't have an o-ring. If it once did, it's now gone....

    Going to check my manual.....!

    Get a rubber mallet. After putting filter back together use the mallet to lightly tap the area around where the filter comes together as you are tightening up the handle.
