    Leak from PVC piping at Joint

    Hi I am new to the site. I noticed a small leak where the PVC pipe screws into another pipe from the strainer. Any ideas on how to take care of this ?
    I have a 25,000 gallon inground plaster pool with a sand filter. I am having a lot of trouble with cloudiness. I also noticed a small leak in the PVC plumbing at a joint. The pool is difficult to take care off and rarely clear

    Got a picture? Is it on the pump? It's unusual to have a screwed fitting anywhere besides the pump and filter. Depending on where it is you can get a union, cut the pipe, fix it, then install the union.
