    leaking sand filter

    I've recently noticed that my sand filter is leaking. Whenever I go into the pool shed to check on my filter, I notice the floor is wet. I've tried to eyeball various different areas on the filter, but so far I can't really tell where it is leaking from. Does anyone have tips to share on how to go about diagnosing the source of the leak? I have a Pentair SD-80 sand filter.

    Wipe down everything with paper towels to make the source easier to find.
