Problems with sand filter

Postby frustrated pool owner » Sun 11 Jun, 2006 08:04

Last fall just before closing I started having problems with the top blowing off the sand filter when I filter ONLY. This spring I replaced all the washers, o-rings and everything else inside of it. I hooked it up yesterday and everything appeared fine on it. However, I went out this morning and turned the filer on so I could vacum again and it started leaking again and then top blew off of it again. :( Seems like the only thing I can do is recycle and backwash without any problems. Everything is new except for the cam and rollers to the handle. I'm not sure where or what to do now. Any suggestions? *This is a Muskin Sand filter*
