Hi,

I have an Anthony DE pool filter. It is an older copper style unit.

Sketch of unit: http://www.poolcenter.com/images/schematic-products/SP_0689.jpg

It is leaking where the bolt tightens up (part 11).

When i opened the container, I think i had some sand / de on it - closed it, it leaked, I reopened it, washed it off with a hose (both sides). Leak is much smaller. Any advice would be great!

Here is my leak.

Thanks,
Rich
