Aqua UV Sterilizer Wiper nut Seal Replacement part

Hello I have a 25W Aqua Classic UV sterilizer with wiper and it started leaking. I took it apart and found that the issue can be fixed by replaceing two washers. Aqua does not sell the washers just the whole wiper nut that includes the washers. Well a Wiper nut with washer costs about $30.00 with shipping I found it on ebay and other places online for cheap

This is the info on the back of the washer

02051VC Oil Seal, VC style, Black -TCM brand

Google this and you will find it online cheaper than having to buy the whole wiper nut unit.

I made this post just as an FYI for anyone having this issue with there aqua uv wiper nut leaking.

It also helps to lubricate the wiper arm with silicone grease. This will prevent leaking and increase longevity of the wiper arm.
