Eheim canister filter

I have a Eheim professional pro 2 and lately when i shut the power off to do a water change it is leaking out the back. Has anyone had this problem? Could it be a bad seal? if so where can you find replacement seals online?

any help would be appreciated!

no its underneath the tank sitting flat. Once its running there is no leaks but its when power goes off to it or right at the beginning of it starting up. It leaks out right where the top disconnects from the bottom.

found out that they have replacement O-Ring seals if anyone else has this problem...
ordered it from aquatics online. Hopefully that was the issue.
