    How to fix a leak on pvc without taking it off

    I used a pvc adapter to screw into the plastic intex piece. As you can see there is a drip. I guess I tightened it all hard I can't untighten. I used oatey great white (no teflon tape under it). Is there something I can do to seal the drip.

    Depending on the leak should be able to put a piece of rubber over the leak and hose clamp it on both ends.

    I should add I don't care if the solution will permanently affix it to the intex.


    Actually that idea you just gave is making me wonder if flex seal will work???????
