Hi everyone, first time poster here.
Need some advice regarding the valve on my sand filter. I think I over-tightened my pressure gauge when I re-installed it this spring, creating a small crack right where the gauge is. A very slow leak has started.
I know I can replace the whole thing, or even the valve, but I'm wondering - is there a way to repair something like this so it doesn't leak? Some sort of marine-grade compound? Also, I "think" my PSI dropped, from about 17 PSI to 15 PSI. Would that be caused by such a small crack?
Thanks for any and all advice!
