    Small leak on valve pipe for returns

    Hi,

    I have a small leak coming from the valve that controls my returns. I don't know much about plumbing so how can I fix this?

    You can not really repair leaks like this from the outside on the pressure side of the pump.
    Ideally you would need to cut it all out and start over.
    How fast are you leaking? I have some drips after my filter too ... annoys me, but the amount of water lost is far less than what evaporates every day.

    not very much at all, just small drips so I guess I will not worry about it at the moment.
