    Hi guys got a two man system when I first got it few months ago one of the pumps was leaking water as I only needed to use it myself I used the other one they said they would replace it must of been a faulty one. Haven't had the new one put in yet but the one that was working fine has now started to leak it seems to be by the top where you have a few screws just below the electrical pins. Has anyone got a clue why or is this yet another faulty pump???

    My first thoughts are; are the screws tight and is there a seal between the plastic and pump that is failing?

    When you say unscrew do you mean all of the screws that hold the top on?
