    Sand Filter Leak.

    replaced our gasket in collar and still leaking. Now I have bubbles in my pool that I didn't have before. Just installed a new intelliflow pump but filter leaked before so replace gasket in collar at the same time. Tightened collar back down but still leaking. Help!

    Re: Sand Filter Leak

    Bubbles are usually, if not always, a suction side leak, so the problem should be between the pump and skimmer, or low water level.

    For the leak at the collar, I'd look for cracks in the bottom of the muliport valve along the bottom anywhere outside of the gasket. If it looks fine and everything is a flush fit, maybe try a new collar if nobody else has other ideas that don't require parts.
