My husband and I just fixed up our filter and replaced our above ground pools pump and are really proud we were able to do it. We had to replace a couple of hard plastic fittings one going into the filter , one coming out of the pump + 2 pieces of tiger stength piping and one fitting near the pump which has on on and off so we can stop the flow near the pump if we have to do any repairs. We were told to wrap with teflon tape which we did and we tightened them all well and they are are leaking ever so slightly(but enough that we should do something). We do not want to tightenen anymore as I don,t want to break anything. Is there anything else we could try, should we use some more teflon tape? Is there any other kindof sealant we could use? Also some of the fittings are threaded on the one end but ridged on the other and if we try to remove the fittings and piping,the piping is stuck almost on the ridged end of the fitting you cannot get it off and the fitting if we try to remove it the flexible piping won,t move so we can't continue to turn the fitting to get it out.We even tried to heat it with some warm water which was suggested to us. This is going to make it crazy to try and undo all of this stuff to take the pump in for the winter, there has to be an easier way to undo all of this even at that time. Please if anyone has any suggestions I need as soon as possible as to get these leaks stopped. Sandra Can any of the indoor plumbing products help in this situation? My pool company who installed this pool has been absolutely useless they just want me to book a service call, seem crazy as this really is not a major issue just inconvienient.
