I traded a guy for a marineland c360 cannister filter. He said it was working fine 4 weeks ago, but it leaks around the corners when I go to prime it. Is it worth buying a seal kit for the cannister or should I just chuck it?

The o-rings probably dried out. I would suggest getting new o-rings if possible, you could try silicone grease to bring the o-ring back to life, or some type of seal kit. My friend had this issue and he ended up putting his canister in a plastic bin inside the stand until he could fix it. (better than water damage)

the c360 is fairly expensive, is there a warranty on it? could you talk to the guy you bought it from about it? I don't think it's a lost cause and worth throwing out just yet. Best of luck!

I talked to the guy about it and he said he left it in his garage and wondered if it had cracked from the cold weather. I asked to trade back and he said he would give me money to buy a new seal. I am assuming the guy got it used and never tested it. I guess I could check the build date on it.

Is this the original C series or the updated Magniflow?

The cannister was grey. I ended up cutting the cord and tossing it. Thanks everyone

The whole kit to replace all the Orings and gaskets on the C-360 is only $7.46 from Marineland.

It was going to be on hardwood sfloors so i didn't wanna chance it after he said it might have frozen in the cold.
