Canister filter leaks during power outage

Mariusg

I have 2 Dophin canisters. One of them is brand new. Both filters starts leaking when there's no power. When closing the hose valves it stops leaking. But I'm not home all the time and we have power outages every day here in SA. Any advice?

Sounds like you need an in line "backflow valve". Hardware stores sell backflow valves.

Might also consider a small plastic tray or tote so set the canisters in the cabinet under the tank.
