    what kind of lube

    I have an Intex 15x48 with a 2500 gph pump, it's leaking I'm thinking I need to lube the o rings but what kind do I need. I have wd 40 and a water based lube can I use one of these?

    WD40 is a water displacer, not a lubricant. I use plumbers grease to lube O-Rings, it comes in a tube at any hardware store.

    You can also get a tube of silicone or teflon based lube made specifically for pools at any pool store. It is very inexpensive.
