We show you how to find leaks and repair them on your Above Ground Swimming Pool Filter and Pump.
They can be easy to fix, sometimes you may get a leak around the ring on the filter. In that case you want to shut the system down like when changing the filter. Remove the ring and lift the top off and there is an O-ring in the top grove. Remove it and clean any dirt and debris and make sure it’s not dry rotted or cracked if you’ve had it for a few years. Put in the top grove and make sure there’s no debris. There is a fitting on the bridge connecting from the pump to the filter. Check the O-rings on both sides and make sure the fittings are tight. Same thing on the front make sure the fittings are tight and check the O-rings. Also check the O-ring on the skimmer basket top.
