Leak from water pump

We have a 2016 Forester 3051 and under the pump water is constantly leaking. Iíve taken plastic filter holder off and put back on but still leaks. Could I order a new filter?

Do you know where the leak is coming from? You ellude that it is coming from the pump then you jump to the filter. ( must assume you mean housing).
From there, I must ask if you lubricated the housing bowl o-ring. If the answer us no, I suggest you start there.

Unless you are calling the strainer a filter. Then we are in a different ball park.

Ahh, the strainer is leaking. Check for cracks and the condition of the gasket.
Those critters are about $10 to replace the entire assembly. Even WallyMart has them. Post a photo so the correct one can be identified.

If the TT was winterized with compressed air only and no antifreeze via a winterizing port, then it is possible that the small amount of water that remains in the strainer could freeze and crack it.

First, check the connections on either side of the strainer by hand, do not use pliers. If you know it is the strainer that's leaking don't mess around install a new one, again no tools. A small drop of dish soap on the threads and o-ring makes it easier to tighten without running the risk of damaging the o-ring.
I have one of those water alarms from HD under the pump, under the sink, washing machine, etc. to catch leaks before they become a problem.

I cannot tell from your photo as it only reveals one connector. The one I can see looks like a twist on side. The barb portion is part of the female connector that the strainer would thread into.

If the hidden side has a swivel nut, life just got real simple.

Edit: For clarity, the swivel nut would be part of the strainer body and not part of a connector crimped into the hose.
