I would start with a new cartridge first to ensure that it is not clogged up or defective..

If you still get the leak after that then check that you are within the operating tolerance for water pressure.

It does sound like a build up of pressure somewhere in the line or it may be that one of the seals is simply damaged or has a build up that is preventing it from doing its job.

Most of these devices are simple to tear down and re-build to check for problems and quite often it is a simple fix. The time between leaks may be of interest if you have a pump or similar operating on a similar time scale as that would maybe indicate the pump was over working and the pressure from the pump may be a little high.

Most of these circuits have test points to be able to fit a guage for basic tests and these guages are not all that expensive. Simple rule of thumb for a meter if to check the specs and find the highest pressure and buy a guage that is at least 1.2 as much as that. So for a max of 100 PSI a 150 PSI guage.

Apart from that filter double check any other filtration devices that may be in the water circuit and if they have back-flush capability perform that too to ensure larger debris is not getting through.

I have a purex triton sand dollar 60 filter I replaced the sand and when I go to put the top back on the filter it will not go down in all the way if the o ring is bad could that cause it not to go down...


First, try a RUBBER mallet and GENTLY tap the perimeter of the Valve Head Flange to seat the Valve Head into the canister tank. If that does not work, you either need a new O-ring or your canisters center tube is off center or there is too much sand UNDER the canisters internal Filter Fingers at the bottom of the tank.

Hope this helps,

Can't get my creepy crawler to work in my pool, i have a purex triton filter system, i can't get any suction on from the crawler


It sounds like your automatic pool cleaner might have a leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to make sure that there are no leaks or cracks. Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Look and check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

I replaced CVA-24 VALVE....now when I turn on pool filter no water being pulled through..no water being pulled through to pump


Your pump has probably lost its prime. This is either because it got too much air or not enough water. Try priming. This should make your pump start working again. Any time pool pumps have to be services, they need to be re-primed. In case you are not sure how, remove the pot lid and fill the pot with water. Re-add and clamp the pot lid. Open the air release valve on the filter and stand clear. Turn on switch or time clock. When water comes out of the air release valve, close the valve. If it is a two speed pump, make sure it is on high speed.

Purex triton powermax 400- gas ignites for a moment and then shuts off - basically cycles on and off for the spa. any idea to the problem?


This is usually either the Thermal Overload Cutoff (an inline fuse to prevent overheating) which costs $13.50 through poolcenter.com, or it is that you are not getting enough water pressure through the heater. There are sensors that will shut down the heater if there is not enough water flow. Is your filter clean so enough pressure/flow is happening?

Purex Triton Minimax 400 pool/spa heater not igniting


This sounds like you have a problem with your pilot. You can check this with a small mirror to see if their is a spark when you turn it on. If you have any soot build up on the pilot that will stop the spark and keep it from lighting also. If you have a short on your pilot wire this could be the problem also. I hope this helps, good luck.
