Replacing Cap O-Ring
Any system that has O-rings and also holds chlorine will need to be maintained carefully. The Chlorine Chambers can cause the O-ring to dry and crack more rapidly. Follow the instructions below to replace the cap O-ring.
Remove Old O-Ring. Place new O-ring in bottom half of groove.
Place your thumbs on each side of the cap over the O-ring in the groove.
Roll your thumbs back and forth over the O-ring while pushing upward until the O-ring falls into the top of the groove.
Lubricate O-ring every couple of months with silicone lubricant that came with your FROG Pool Tender Cycler. DO NOT USE petroleum based lubricants.
To replace, simply unscrew old knob and replace with the new one.
