I have just started an Eheim 2028 which I haven't used for a few years. All seemed fine for 4 hours after which it started to leak quite badly. Seal looks OK so I have smeared Vaseline all around and restarted. Again seems to be Ok but I am concerned that it will start to leak again when I am not around. Could there be a problem anywhere else in the head where water can leak into?

I had a similiar problem with the quick release mechanism on a 2028, and basically there was a hair line crack, so it dribbled out.

It was an unused spare, and i probably cracked the unit packing it away before. :(
