Yesterday I replace my pump. All seemed to go well until I noticed water pooling at the bottom of it.
Turns out the culprit is where the water leaves the pump to go to the filter. Where the PVC pipe screws into the pump, it's leaking.
I wrapped the threads in plumbers tape and tightened is much as I could, but it's definitely leaking.
Is there a way to fix that without having to saw off the PVC above it? I can't tighten anymore since it's sealed to the pipe above it.
And if I do have to replace it...how can I prevent it from leaking on the next one?
