Have a slow leak around bottom of filter

Postby Joninmelbourne » Sun 17 Sep, 2017 03:13

Hi there
I've had a slow leak around the bottom of the filter , near the filter basket and around this plastic screw at the bottom of the housing. It'drips maybe once every 20 minutes but it's enough to leave a big puddle after a few days in our garage. I have tried tightening the big plastic screw but it doesn't see to have an effect and the screw doesn't turn. Any ideas? Thank you !

I don't understand where you are talking about. Do you mean the pump or the filter?
Can you take an image of the general area and the exact location
