We are new to pool ownership, just moved into a house with an above ground pool.
We just bought and installed a Hayward xstream 150 cartridge filter. We put it in on Monday and it was leaking from the inlet, we tried pvc glue and teflon tape, did not work. We went and bought all new fittings and hose, double clamped each area and put on teflon tape and cement, and now both the inlet and outlet are leaking. The PSI is 19 and is holding at that.
What else can we try. The pool store told us everything should be air tight and it has been 3 days now and we cannot figure out what we are doing wrong. The old starite filter the old owners had seemed to be glued tight at every fitting, but the store told us clamps and teflon is all we need.
