    gasket for wynn filter

    I own a delta 50-760 DC.
    I have a wynn catridge filter on top.
    The rubber/foam gasket is damaged(I damaged it), does anyone know where I can purchase a new gasket? I didn't measure it, its like 16 inchs.

    I'd just buy a strip of door seal gasket locally and use that.

    I'd call Wynn and see if they can send you a new one. Chances are, Mr. Wynn himself will answer the phone.

    Rick will probably have one to you in no time flat. It's some pretty thick stuff, and it's stiff too - never seen any weather stripping at my local place that would be a suitable substitute, myself.

    I made a "temporary" gasket out of one of HF's cheap floor mats. It worked OK and has become, at least, semi-permanent. I just used very heavy duty carpet scissors and cut out a circle. Then I cut a smaller circle out of the center of that (giving me a very flat do-nut with a giant hole).

    A floormat piece that was a bit softer (as in more expensive) would have been a bit better I think. I used the cheap material because I thought it was going to be a 1 or 2 day set-up.

    Enjoy,

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    a new gasket is on the way, the new one is totally different I was told, much better, alleviate any problems of worrying about having it centered.

    I need to due a fair amount of cutting this weekend, as I have to size up plywood and make 2 chairs, so Im going to wrap up the leak with a lot of duct tape just so I don't get any spray until the gasket gets installed.(my arthritis hands and bad back, I wont be installing those turnbuckles, have to wait for help, either my son or my buddy)
    I couldn't believe the one small leak area irritated my eyes so bad yesterday.

    the gasket is clever. It now fits onto the rim of the DC, and the fliter just sits on top of it. Much better, now if I can only figure out how to secure it with anything else besides those turnbuckles. (just tough to put on with arthritic handies)
    but the collector is up and running with no air escaping.
