Swimming pool filter leaks are very common and although a cracked or split filter cannot be repaired, the piping going into the filter can be repaired. Mostly the filter tank fittings start to leak over time due to movement of the filter due to the ground softening from rain, etc. The filter tank fittings often sheer off where the pipe meets the filter. This is easily repaired by removing the filter sand and replacing thedamaged or leaking filter tank fitting.
Often the multi port valve will let water pass through to the backwash pipe and the pool will lose water as a result. This type of repair is very inexpensive and requires that the wagon wheel seal be replaced. This should be done by a qualified pool specialist.
