I have a Waterway pump and sand filter. The pump and sand filter are connected by a flexible hose. Before TFP I had hooked up a puck chlorinator and to do so had inserted a PVC T into the flexible hose. I used regular PVC glue, but had a hard time getting it to seal. The joints have started leaking. Does this type of flexible hose to PVC require a special type of glue? My plan is to put glue on the outside of the joints to try to stop the leak. Any other recommendations on how to stop the leak at the joints?
I have considered replacing the flexible hose with Schedule 40 PVC, but regular male and female pvc connectors do not screw onto and into the pump and filter. Does Waterway use a special size or thread on these connections and if so are they available?
