    Pentair Booster Leaking

    I have an issue with leaking coming from the top connection out of the booster pump. When just the pool is on, there is a small leak, but when you turn booster on the vacuum, it really pumps it out then. Wonder what method I should use to fix that... glue, putty, whatnot. Any recommendations? TYIA

    What type of fitting is it? Sounds like a replacement might be the best option. If it's a significant leak at all, I wouldn't try putty or glue.

    Sorry for the delay getting back to this... It's coming from the top left portion of this picture... Amazon.com : Pentair LA01N Energy Efficient Single Speed Pressure-Side Pool Cleaner Booster Pump, 3/4 Horsepower, 115/230 Volt : Swimming Pool Water Pumps : Patio, Lawn Garden

    It's plumbed using PVC, not like how Pentair has it listed with a flexible connection. Do they sell the connection kit maybe? My PB hasn't been too helpful unfortunately.
