I have to issues that I am at my wits end with, please help me with suggestions....
1. I changed out sand, replaced multiport valve, got a new pump, and redid the pvc plumbing. The threaded fittings from the filter to the pump are slowing leaking, like a drop every minute. I hired someone in to seal those and he's been out 3 times and they still drip the same. The first time he re Teflon'd them, they leaked. The second time he did the same, still leaked. And the third he mixed up what looks like putty and slapped in on, it still leaks. It's a pain to unscrew the fittings because you have to cut the pvc to unthread. how can I stop these leaks?
2. I have air in my pump. Not just little champaign bubbles, it's like an inch below strainer lid. It's a brand new pump and I lubed the o ring when installing. It's a two speed, and after running on low for about an hour the water slowing drops in basket. On high there is water there is water spraying every which way in strainer basket on pump and I can't really tell how much water is in there but it's definitely low.
Can anyone help me? In the meantime I'm scared to leave my new pump on in fear I will damage it because of the air.
