I just purchased a house with an in ground pool. The pool has a Posi-Clear Filter. The pressure gauge was broken so I bought a new one. Unfortunately, it was cross threaded when they put it in (It is platic threads. I removed it, but when I put the new one in, I have a small water leak. I tried using extra teflon tape and that did not help. I don't want to pull it out again because it will just make it worse. Can I just caulk the leak around the pressure gauge? Do I need to purchase a new top to the filter from Posi-clear?
It is just a very small trickle of water, but I want to make sure it gets fixed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
