Your pool cartridge filters need to be free of air for it to function correctly. Air usually gets into your filter from the pump or from after you clean your filter cartridge. Your pool filter bleed valves are strategically located at the top of your filter (since air goes up) and a simple twist will allow you to “bleed” all of the air out of the filter tank. You’ll know when the bleeding process is complete when water starts to flow out of your bleed valve.
Pool filter bleed valves also play a role in priming older non-self-priming pool pumps by allowing your pool pump to push all of the air out of the pump and filter. Check out this blog post for more information on how to prime your pool pump.
If your bleed valve is leaking water even though it’s closed then it’s time for a replacement, and this should be done as soon as possible. A leaky pool filter bleed valve is a point of failure in itself. Not only does it allow water to leak out and pressure to escape, but it could fly out like a bullet depending on the type of damage sustained.
A leaky filter bleed valve could also mean that there’s a crack on your pool lid where the pool filter bleed valve is attached so be sure to check your pool filter lid as well if your bleed valves are leaking water.
