loosing pool water

i had the same problem- i thought that the gasket to the sand filter looked worn so it ws replaced- this is the gasket which sits under the handle to the sand filter. after i did this i still had some water leaking- it turns out that if that is the case the gasket needs to be glued with crazy glue in its place- you need to thuroughly dry out the inside of the area- i used a hair dryer to make sure it was not wet- used the glue on the underside of the new gasket and put it in place- then wait 2 hours and then replace the handle to the filter and put the pump back on. this solved my problem hope it helps out.
