leaking canister suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend that has a leaking aqua one cf100 canister

she has had it for 6 years, but now it is not playing nice, i dont have any canisters, so thought i would get some ideas from here...

at first it was leaking around the lid, apparently this has stopped.

now it is leaking around were the inlet and outlet are, apparently it has been a little while since she cleaned it.

I am guessing the seals are just shagged due to age.? But it wasn't leaking prior to her cleaning it out..

[MENTION=1698]trofius[/MENTION] Some plumbers tape around the o-rings seal points will let you keep it running & keep the bacteria alive long enough to order new seals. Good old thread tape has saved my arse a few times over the years ;)

Give it a clean whilst pulled down then wrap thread tape around the head seal & the tap seals, give it a few layers, see if that seals, if not go a lil thicker each time until it does. Will get you by until new o-rings are found/arrive.
