    Contractor Replaced Pump, did he slightly unseat my ball valve

    My contractor installed a new pool pump, but I think he unseated the seat collar on my ball valve by a hair.

    It leaks a drop of water every few seconds. See the drop at about 4 to 5 o'clock in the picture.

    Should he undo the new pool pump and attempt to reseat?

    Can you give us a wider picture? Also looks like the ball valve might have Union connections. If so, have you tried tightening those up?

    I added a second photo to the original post. The white PVC is the existing PVC.

    looks like it also a union turn off the pump, unscrew that union and lube it, and put it back together... should fix it
