Just found this site and really enjoy reading through all the information (and headaches) that people have shared!
I am in the process of hard plumbing my replacement Intex filter/pump along with the Hayward Skimmer. The problem I have is that all of the threaded PVC connections are leaking....no matter what I have done.
I read on the pvc connection manufacturers site, that I should NOT use Teflon tape, however I see other people are doing this. Others have suggested to use pipe dope and then there are some that say not needed or don't do it!
Any suggestions on how to rectify this would be very helpful.
