Ok so I have the Cascade 1000 and it's leaked twice now. When it happened the first time, I took it apart, cleaned everything and put it back together no more problem. Now this time about two weeks later, there's a pool of water on the floor again. I took it apart, everything looks fine. Gaskets look good, no damage whatsoever. Impeller is in good shape. No cracks on the body itself.


Try a little Vaseline on all of the 0-rings/gaskets, it will not leach into the water and is not toxic to the fish. If the leak stops you need new seals. I use a little on my seals just because it makes the pieces slide together easier, and, stops leaks.
