Fluval 206 leaking

MichSzcz

Hi all,
After a maintenance clean of my fluval 206 external filter I appear to have 2 leaks, one from around the main seal/right hand side handle
And the second from the aquastop valve,
I'll attach pictures so you can see

Hi

Did you remove the pipes to clean? All I can suggest is making sure the seals are seated flush and it's all tight as can be. Other than that I would get silicone sealant on it.

No i didn't, I only removed the aquastop from the unit

Clean all the O-rings on the valve and the main cover very well and make sure nothing is in the channels where they are seated and retry it. Also always have spare valve orings and main canister seals on hand for exactly this situation

Thank you I'll strip it tomorrow and check it all
