Pool filter O-rings are small pieces of rubber that creates a seal in between two sections of equipment like in between your filter lid and the body, your pipe unions, the multiport valve and the sand filter tank and more. Without a proper seal, your equipment at the very least could spring a leak, and at the worst, cause equipment failure and damage.
Proper Pool Filter O-ring Maintenance
To ensure that your equipment is functioning properly and that your O-rings don’t fail prematurely, here are some simple steps you can follow:
Ensure that the O-rings are clean - When opening and closing equipment that’s joined by O-rings, ensure that no dirt or debris is caught on the O-ring when closing them back up to prevent scratches or tears.
Lubricate your O-rings when exposed to air - Whenever your O-ring is exposed to air, give it a light coating of silicone-based lubricant like the Aussie Gold Lube it.
Pool Filter O-rings are an easy fix so there isn’t a reason not to replace them at the first sign of damage, and all the reasons in the world to replace them immediately.
