Finally got some weather warm enough for swimming, so I attempted to start the heater. On my setup, the heater can be bypassed, or you can turn valves to have water flow through.
When I let water flow through the heater today, water started leaking out pretty quickly from the connection between the pvc and the heater. From the lower of the two connections. I think that's the outflow from the heater. I tried tightening things and it actually seemed a little worse, so I bypassed the heater. Doesn't drip when bypassed.
Heater was new in fall 2010. Never had any problems. Pool was winterized by my pool builder and opened as usual this spring.
I put in a call to the pb but I was wondering what you guys thought the problem might be? Is it fixable for a very UNhandy homeowner?
Type slowly, I'm really not very diy
