Just installed my new Hayward S244t and for the life of me, I can not get the fittings to completely seal. One is a drip every 30 sec, and the other takes about 3 min per drop. Yes I know its minimal, and it evaporates fast, but I can not let it leak...will drive me crazy.
I started with white Teflon tape, leaked bad!!! Then I bought the Pink heavy Teflon tape. Still leaked. I re-wrapped the fittings like crazy and almost got it, but it is still leaking. Why are these so hard to seal? Its not like im new at pipe fitting...been doing it my whole life, but this one has me baffled.
So...has anyone used the liquid Teflon pipe dope? I am also interested in any ideas... Thanks All
PS If i missed this in a topic already just point me the way please...I could not find anything in the search.
