Jandy DE filter failure. recall?

Postby ron5300 » Mon 30 Nov, 2009 13:10

i have a jandy cj200 filter which is 3-1/2 yrs old and yesterday the unit cracked and developed a 4 inch long crack approx 2 inches above the left bottom fitting...

there is no crack on the fitting... on the bottom half of the filter a 4 inch long crack opened on its side wall..

i live in central florida where the low year round temp rarely goes below 40F.....

its like a bucket developing a whole in the side of it....

the wholesale on these is 500 + shpg plus tax and installation...
and ordering just the bottom only saves 120$

i'm told that most mfg's used to give a 10 yr warranty but now its only a 1 yr...

When the filter cracks, it will either spray, or pour water everywhere!

no spray or pouring happening. Just an increase in pressure from 20 to about 35-40, then fountain loss

Have you checked to see if you have a clogged return line? Also, did you recently put new filter media in?

I, too, have a DEL60 and it is leaking between the two pipes. Jandy says they have never had a defective filter tank. after reading this I beg to differ. Any way to find out the real warranty on this tank, seems to vary mine says 5 years it's been 7?

I have 6 year old Jandy DEL 60 with a crack. My pool builder provided a list of manufacturer's warranties and listed the filter container as having a 10/20 yr warranty. Builder now out of business, but I don't beleive he lied. Jandy/Zodiac says the warranty is wrong and should be 3 years. Does anyone have an warranty info published by Jandy, in that time frame , showing the longer warranty or any other info on the subject?

I have Jandy 69 that developed a small crack perpendicular to the inlet, causing a constant drip. My pool info indicated a 10 yr warranty, 2005 pool, Jandy claims 10 yr warranty ended 2004,. My pollo installer is now out of business. Would like to reapair small leak vs buy new filter. Anyone have suggestion?
