Rena Filter Leaking

Hi Folks,
Having a simple problem and cannot seem to solve it ... any advice would be great. I can not stop my Rena canister filter from leaking (a little bit) at the O-Ring. Have changed O-Rings for a new one and still no luck. Any ideas?

Moved to general hardware section.

Are you referring to the oring around the whole cap of the filter, or around one of the hose barbs?

If it's the cap, make sure you have all the baskets properly seated down inside the canister body. If they're not seated properly, they can cause the lid to not seat properly.
