    Filter Fitting Leak

    I have a Purex Triton II High Rate Filter (sand) on an in ground pool. Right now it is leaking (small but enough to cause concern) at the fittings where the plumbing exits the fiberglass tank (side). Any suggestions for cause / repair?

    Most likely the bulkhead fittings. They can be tightened, but you may have to replace the seal.
