Try smothering the O-Ring with Vasaline till you can buy a replacement then when you get a new one do it to this too and it should prolong the life, hope this helps mate.

vaseline to the o-ring most times solves this problem,they come lubricated when new but this fades away after opening it a few times

Tetratec is the international version of the Marineland C-series canister filter (or vice versa depending on how you look at it). Check out the following link about people who have had Marineland canisters leak and Marineland sending them replacements.

I've had my 2 C series canister filters for a year now and have not had any problems so far. it seems as if the weak link is the valve block. You may be able to call the distributor and get them to rectify your leak.
