    Unhappy Pump housing leaking

    I've read some threads about leaky pump housings. I'm not sure what type of pump it is, but I can see that there's a leak a the location in the picture.

    This is a pic at the front of the impeller housing. I can see water and air-bubbles from the top of silver connector.

    Any one have any ideas how to repair this fitting?

    Thanks in advance

    Can you take a picture of the pump data plate. You may have to cut the piping and redo the connection. You may want to use a union connection in the future.

    turn it off, dry it, then try to unthread it.

    If that is a threaded you might only need some plumbing tape to fix.

    Well, I finally got frustrated enough to cut the darn thing off. Yipeee, it's threaded in the pump housing. Now to just get a PVC to make the connection and some pool pipe-glue and I'm good to go.

    Thanks for all the input.

    Cheers
