Common mishaps / challenges when DIY servicing:

  • Spilling water over electrics
  • Breaking the sleeve - keep the lamp parrallel ALL the way out
  • Not replacing the seals - subsequent leaks
  • Not cleaning the sleeve - getting sick
  • Unable to undo the filter sumps - they tighten from pump cycles
  • Unable to seal the filter sump - large oring has flattened - due to previous repeated over  tightening
  • Not bleeding all the air out - airpockets create hot spots - air pressure is dangerous
  • Corroded lamp plug - unable to plug new lamp in
  • Not properly securing the cover - easily blows over or off
