rate is pretty low. They make them the same way they did

certainly not a modern one -- If one wants modern, get a
System One -- that's only a5 year old technology for
diatoms.  A couple of small changes here and there to the
Vortexes, diff motors, but the basic design is the same. 
And that's why some folks hate it -- too finicky about some
things, too much hassle dealing with the tubing and

The filter seals the same way a mayonaise jar or mason jar
does -- nothing fancy about it -- just a gasket that fits
between the lid and the jar rim. Sorry that your's didn't
seal. I've had several -- own two right know. Mine are more
like the bulk of the run - they work great and they don't
complain.  The System One is a better choice if you don't
like fiddling around with tubes and charging. that's a real
get-in/get-out filter.
