Having problems with your filter? Here are a few of the most common cartridge filter problems and how to solve them.

If you find leaks around filter housing, Take the locking ring off, take the top of the canaster off and check the O-Ring and make sure it is seated properly then put every thing back together and that normally will solve the leaking. Checking the PSI should run around 10 and 15, if it gets up to 20 take the cartridge out and rinse it and put it back in. if that doe not work it may be time the replace the cartridge.

Not getting enough presser out of the jet would be the cartridge, need cleaning or replaced.
