Now that the pool is closed and drained to closing level, I can fix the leak in my pipes. I was wondering if someone can give advice on the best way to fix the problem and what parts I need based on the photo's attached. The leak is on photo leak.jpg marked with a red circle
A couple of questions:
1)Can I heat the pipe somehow and reprime it?
Questions based on if I cannot reprime the pipe:
2)The portion of the pipe that is leaking goes to my polaris 380 pump. The piping looks like it has a v-shaped trap like a sink. Does it need to have that when I replace it?
3)Based on photo big picture,jpg and leak2.jpg, pool equipment area 1 where the leak is goes to pool equipment area 2 and then it splits between floor and side returns. Would you install shutoff valves in leak2.jpg photos on areas marked with red circles?
4)I am not sure about the names of all the piping parts. Could someone tell me what piping parts would I need to buy?
