I had a leak where the pipe comes out of the pump to go to the filter. I tried teflon tape it still leaked.
Spoke to guy at pool store who suggested using Permatex with teflon tape. Still leaked.
Had pool company comeout to fix it and the first time they tried, it still leaked. I belive they just tried retaping and Permatex.
Had them com eback and they replumbed the elbow and the leak stopped.
A couple of days later I went to check the pump basket and found glob of Permatex in basket.
Is there any health concern about the permatex getting into the water?
