Spider gasket Lube or no Lube
Been having problems with a newly installed spider gasket. Called 2 pool stores today both which told me that I should have not lubricated the spider gasket. From this forum I've read that it is necessary to lube the gasket.
Called the manuf. of the filter, Astral they said if it's not sealing with the lube then take it out and clean it off and see what happens. I did that and it still leaks when the filter is running, drips only. When the filter is off it doesn't leak. With the lube on it leaked with the filter on and off. They are sending me a new gasket since this one doesn't seem to be working out.
When I receive the new gasket I would like to know if I should apply lube or not. Thoughts?
