Hi Adog,

Well I am not sure what kind of filter you have, but if it has a motor there is more than likely some kind of oil it is cased in. So like I said, this is just one possibility of what may be causing your slick. You'll have to decide whether that is the problem or not. Is the motor submerged in the water, does the motor casing have contact with water? How old is your equipment? The are the questions you want to answer. If it is new, then it is probably not the problem.
