    Filter leaking from drain cap

    We just had a new agp installed last weekend and it looks like water is slowly leaking (a drip every few seconds) around the drain cap of our Hayward Swimpro SW256T sand filter. Should I be worried? Should I remove it and wrap the threads in plumbing tape? Thanks!

    You should shut everything down and remove it and clean and lube it good and put it back on right.
