Canister problem

Unread postby geeth » Fri Jan 08, 2016 1:01 pm

Hi all, i am using one canister filter of jbl, crystal profi greenline. I have one problem that whenever the light goes(power failure are common in noida) i had to restart the filter again by removing head, its very annoying at least 3-4 times a day. I tried installing ups for the filter but it didnt work. A small fluctuation stops the filter. I couldnt fig out how air goes inside, i checked the washer, applied Vaseline but no use. Any one have faced similar issue?
Please help me.


Thanks and Regards.
Arun.

Check all the joints. Also clean the head inserting place using a toothbrush.

Check all the tubing.If they are not tight you will have to prime the filter at every start.

I cleaned everything and will try tomorrow. I am planning to use the plumbers tape to lock the tubing's. I hope that will work.
Thank you for the support, will share the details tomorrow.

Thanks and Regards.
