Today I pulled off the flex hoses that came with pool and ran 1.5" PVC. All went well until I started flowing water again and ALL the male adapters (at filter ports, pump inlet & outlet, return). I used PFE sealing tape on all the threads. So I thought maybe I didn't use enough tape....pulled everything apart, cleaned threads, ran 2x layers of tape...still leaking . Now I've got couplers everywhere and looks crappy plus the drips. Its definitely leaking through the threads.
What did I do wrong? Too much tape? Not enough? Wrong sealant?
Any help is appreciated.
