I have a leak that’s about 1 drop per second right where the pipe from the pump connect to my filter. I’ve not worked with plumbing before, is this a DIY repair or should I call someone? If call, do you recommend calling pool repair or a plumber?
Yes !! It took me 5 years of reassembling my equipment each spring to realize that my ‘hand right’ was equal to the PB’s ‘hand tight plus 1/8th turn’. I made many drips that needed redoing in the meantime. Once I stopped overthinking it I was fine. A little under is fine and if it drips you can tighten it just a hair more. If you go too far it will start dripping more as you tighten too much. If you put it together and it doesn’t drip, walk away slowly.
