I thought I had every little annoying leak stopped until Friday evening when my Polaris 65 arrived. I installed the unit and started it up and after a few adjustments had it running pretty smoothly. When I walked around back to disconnect it for the evening I noticed my darn return fitting, between the pool wall and outside piece had a small steady stream of water running down the outside wall. It is slow and over the weekend I haven't noticed any significant loss of water from the pool but it is puddling up and making a muddy mess near my pump/ filter that I have to step in to access the fitting.
What the heck can I do to stop it. I've tried tightening it but I can't budge it. I think it's a larger than normal fitting with the finned nut on the inside. With water above the return level I don't know much I can do. Are there any tricks to getting these things leak free? The guy who installed the pool ahd a home made wrench that he used to tighten it and it stayed dry for over a week before it sprung a leak. I wished I had pictures but you guys probably know what I'm talking about.
